In Atlantic Africa and the Spanish Caribbean, 1570–1640, David Wheat, Associate Professor of History at Michigan State University, depicts the early Spanish Caribbean as an extension of events and patterns established in western Africa and the Atlantic Islands. This new approach illustrates how African-forced migrants became de facto colonists in the Spanish Caribbean’s major port cities and their hinterlands. Wheat will be in conversation with historian Herman Bennett, Professor at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, whose forthcoming study is entitled “Soiled Gods: Africans and Sovereign Power in the Early Atlantic.”
