Primarily an Early American historian, I also have subsidiary interests in the African-American experience, the early Caribbean, and the study of the early Atlantic world.

My primary research focus at present is early Caribbean history, set within a broad Atlantic context.

I co-admit graduate students working in a wide range of areas related to early Atlantic history.

I pay great attention to literary style and edit the work of students closely.

Some of the prizes I have won include:

  • Association of Caribbean Historians Best Article Prize (1995-1997)
  • American Historical Association, Albert J. Beveridge Award and Wesley-Logan Prize (1988)
  • Columbia University, Bancroft Prize (1999)
  • Organization of American Historians, Elliott Rudwick Prize (1999)
  • Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Yale University, Frederick Douglass Prize (1999)
  • Southern Historical Association, Frank L. and Harriet C. Owsley Prize (1999)
  • American Philosophical Society, Jacques Barzun Prize (1999)
  • Georgia Historical Society, Malcolm Bell, Jr., and Muriel Barrow Bell Award (2011)
