I’m Professor of History at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Since working with Franklin Knight and Robert Forster at Johns Hopkins in the mid-1980s, I’ve been studying French colonial Saint-Domingue in the eighteenth century. My work focuses on social, cultural, and economic developments in the colony before the Haitian Revolution.

I’m looking forward to learning about new research on Haitian history from French scholars at  May 19 and 20, 2017, when I present at a conference hosted by the University of Chicago Paris Center.

In 2017-18 I’ll be one of 35 fellows at the National Humanities Center in North Carolina, writing a book on Macandal, Saint-Domingue’s legendary poisoner and rebel.
