My research interests specifically include West African history in the pre-colonial and colonial period. I am interested in exploring the role of dance and culture in defining gender roles during these periods as well as how West African dance and its associated gender ideals spread across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and Latin America as a result of the slave trade.
