EVENT: Andrea C. Mosterman, author of "Spaces of Enslavement" on Monday, October 25

"I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I always had an interest in the history of slavery, but learned very little about Dutch slavery when growing up."

— Andrea C. Mosterman


MONDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2021

Presentation/Q&A — 7:30 p.m., Multi-Purpose Room, Campus Center West Addition, University at Albany, 1400 Washington Avenue, Albany 12222


Free and open to the public.


Andrea C. Mosterman, American historian, is the author of the new book, Spaces of Enslavement: A History of Slavery and Resistance in Dutch New York (2021), a critical and overdue chapter on the place of slavery and resistance in the colony and young state of New York.


The book received the 2020 Hendricks Award for best book-length manuscript presented by Albany’s New Netherland Institute, an organization dedicated to casting light on America’s long-neglected Dutch roots.


Andrea C. Mosterman is the Joseph Tregle Endowed Professor in Early American History at the University of New Orleans.

"I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I always had an interest in the history of slavery, but learned very little about Dutch slavery when growing up. This lack of exposure to such an important part of Dutch history encouraged me to study slavery more generally and in the Dutch Atlantic in particular when I had a chance to do so at the University of Amsterdam (BA & MA), Louisiana State University (ISEP), and Boston University (Ph.D.). Through my research and writing, I hope to bring more attention to this history."
--Andrea C. Mosterman

Copies of Spaces of Enslavement will be available for purchase at the event. You may also shop for the book in advance at the local, independent Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza.
