Short presentation

My research focuses on fugitive slave life in the Danish West Indies, three Caribbean islands that were colonized by Denmark in the 1700s. By combining newspaper announcements, alerting readers of enslaved people on the run, with the surprisingly detailed archives of the Danish Caribbean colonial state, my resarch aims to contextualize fugitive slaves’ lives and address questions about the meaning and practice of freedom on the run.

Keywords: social history colonialism slavery
