EVENT CANCELED

In the 18th-century Atlantic world, race became an important component of who was able to reproduce and how reproduction was represented. Professor Elizabeth Maddock Dillon of Northeastern University discusses how marriage and maternity took different shapes and held different meanings for Indigenous women, enslaved African women, and European women in the colonial economy of the early Caribbean.
