Jacqueline Allain
Student

My research interests lie in the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean, with a particular emphasis on women and gender both during slavery and in the post-emancipation era. My dissertation research, supervised by Professor Laurent Dubois, examines motherhood, reproduction, and population politics in Martinique in the years leading up to emancipation and the decades following. I maintain a secondary research interest in gender and incarceration in the nineteenth-century British Caribbean. I am a James B. Duke fellow, a 2018-19 MicroWorlds Lab Fellow, and a founding member of the Working Group in Slavery, War, and Gender.
