Research Interests

April Hatfield received her Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins University in 1998 and began teaching at Texas A&M the following year.  Her work examines how borders and migration shaped individuals and institutions in the early modern Atlantic world.  Her publications include several book chapters and articles and the monograph Atlantic Virginia: Intercolonial Relations in the Seventeenth Century (2004).  Her current project “Creole Allegiances” follows a variety of individuals as they negotiated the borders of English and Spanish imperial spaces in the western Caribbean and southeastern North America in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
