Worlds in motion

Welcome! I’m a UK-based writer working on the history of revolutions and the African Diaspora in the Atlantic World.

My interest in worlds and people in motion led me to write my first book Rogue Revolutionaries: The Fight for Legitimacy in the Greater Caribbean reviving the tumultuous lives of individuals who came together to export revolution and create their own states.  I have created a digital companion to the book with the cast of characters, original sources, maps, and an archival research guide.

Various resources are available for teachers, researchers, and students on this site. Click on Research to learn more about my work and find digital projects around Atlantic world history and the African Diaspora. More generally, my research engages with histories of citizenship, race, and migration. 

In addition, a few syllabi and reading lists can be found on the Teaching page, including on the Atlantic Slave Trade, the Haitian Revolution, and the Black Atlantic.
