New England Bound

May 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dr. Wendy Warren of Princeton University will be presenting about her book, New England Bound: Slavery and Colonization in Early America. Her work explores the experience of chattel bondage in seventeenth-century New England, illuminating the deadly symbiosis between slavery and colonization in the Atlantic World. A book signing will follow the lecture in our Museum Store.

Wendy Warren is Assistant Professor of History; Philip and Beulah Rollins Bicentennial Preceptor at Princeton University. Dr. Warren specializes in the history of colonial North America, and the early modern Atlantic World. She is particularly interested in the day-to-day practice of colonization, and in the negotiations and conflicts that exist between would-be rulers and the unruly.

Professor Warren began her work at Princeton in 2010, after receiving her M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D. in history from Yale University. Her book, New England Bound: Slavery and Colonization in Early America (Liveright/W.W. Norton, 2016), explores the lived experience of chattel bondage in seventeenth-century New England, illuminating the deadly symbiosis between slavery and colonization in the Atlantic World.
