‘New England Bound’: Warren explores colonialism and slavery

May 16, 2017

Wendy Warren, an assistant professor of history at Princeton University, specializes in the history of colonial North America and the early modern Atlantic world. She joined the University in 2010 after receiving her Ph.D. in history from Yale University.

Warren’s 2016 book, “New England Bound,” explores the lived experience of chattel bondage — enslaved people held as property — in 17th-century New England. The book was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize this year and won the Organization of American Historians’ 2017 Merle Curti Social History Prize.
