Sophie White CF

Sophie White, Associate Professor of American Studies and Concurrent Associate Professor of Gender Studies, was awarded a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities (N.E.H.) for her book project on “Voices of the African Diaspora Within and Beyond the Atlantic World.” This research is centered on the analysis of an extraordinary body of testimony by enslaved Africans in colonial Louisiana and beyond, and seeks to give voice to the (often gendered) verbal and non-verbal stories which enslaved individuals, forced into a global African diaspora, sought somehow to narrate. This is White's second N.E.H. fellowship, she also received one for her first book, which was a finalist for the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians Book Prize, Wild Frenchmen and Frenchified Indians: Material Culture and Race in Colonial Louisiana
