The International Studies Program at the University of North Florida presents:

A Brown Bag with Dr. Andrea C. Mosterman, University of New Orleans

Dutch Reformed attitudes towards African participation in the church:  The case of Early New York and beyond.



Dr. Andrea C. Mosterman graduated from Boston University in 2012. She currently teaches history at the University of New Orleans. Dr. Mosterman explores the multi-faceted dimensions of slavery, slave trade, and cross-cultural contact in the Early Modern Atlantic. Her most recent project examines the origins and development of cultural practices and traditions that came out of African and Dutch interactions in New Netherland/New York. There, African and Dutch descendants shared a number of spaces: the home, the workplace, the court, the church, and the public space. Her project investigates how by sharing these spaces they influenced each other’s ways of life. 

Friday 15 March at 11:00 AM Bldg 51 Room 2121 (SACJ Conference Room)
