My own research is centered around slave subjecthood within the British Empire, specifically between England and the mainland North American colonies. Possible papers for this panel could include slave and free black legal statuses in the Anglo-American world, slave/freedom cases, or other topics surrounding slavery.

I'd like to put together a panel for the 2018 SHEAR conference (proposals are due December 1). My work is concerned with presidential politics and the territorial system.
