This event will take place online via Zoom.

Speaker: Jeppe Mulich

At this event, Jeppe Mulich will present his recent book, “In a Sea of Empires: Networks and Crossings in the Revolutionary Caribbean” (Cambridge University Press, 2020).

Jeppe explores the interconnected nature of imperial politics and colonial law in the maritime borderlands of the Leeward Islands, where British, Danish, Dutch, French, Spanish, and Swedish colonies both competed and cooperated with one another.

His work offers a new account of the age of revolutions in the Caribbean, emphasizing the border-crossing nature of life in the region.
