My research interests centre around slavery in Montréal during the late sixteen- and seventeenth-centuries. I am specifically focused on the intimate and familial relationships that developed between slaves within Montréal society, and the way in which these social, cultural, and economic networks were constructed. Through my consideration of prominent French individuals within Montréal and their slaves, I plan to reconstruct the networks that created colonial society. I will be completing this project under the supervision of Dr. Nancy van Deusen
