Research Interests

Rebecca Hartkopf Schloss earned her PhD at Duke University in 2003 and joined Texas A & M University the same year. She teaches courses in Atlantic World History, Modern France, and the Caribbean. Her first project, Sweet Liberty: The Final Days of Slavery in Martinique, (2009), focuses on the relationship between Martinique and continental France and the construction of racial, class, gender and national identities during the first half of the nineteenth century. Her second project, France at the Edges: Life in France’s Atlantic Port Cities, 1760-1830, explores connections among French Atlantic port cities in the Americas, the Caribbean, Africa and Europe during the so-called Age of Empire.
