Catherine A.J. Molineux, Associate Professor of History (Vanderbilt University) presents an Early Modern Cosmopolitanisms Lecture entitled "A West African Imam in 18th Century London: How the Radical Enlightenment Shaped the Atlantic Slave Trade." Professor Molineux holds a Ph.D. and an M. A. from Johns Hopkins University, and a B.A. History (with Honors)/ B.S. (Microbiology) from the University of Texas at Austin, summa cum laude. Trained in history, literary criticism, and art history, her interdisciplinary scholarship focuses on the history of the early modern British Atlantic (including early North America and the Caribbean, Britain, and West Africa), with special emphasis on visual culture and on race, slavery, and empire. She published "Faces of Perfect Ebony: Encountering Imperial Slavery in Imperial Britain" (Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 2012) and is working on a new book, tentatively entitled "The Making of Kings: African Sovereignty in the British Atlantic World," with support from a 2013-14 ACLS Charles A.
