Jacqueline Allain, of History and Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies

Jacqueline Allain

My research interests lie in the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean, with a particular emphasis on women and gender both during slavery and in the post-emancipation era. My dissertation, “Birthing Imperial Citizens: Natal Politics in Martinique, 1830-1900,” supervised by Professor Laurent Dubois, explores the intersections of motherhood, (re)production, and citizenship in nineteenth-century Martinique. I maintain a secondary research focus on gender and incarceration in the nineteenth-century British Caribbean.  I have also recently begun to research the life stories of a formerly enslaved woman and her children who became embroiled in a complex property dispute with a white family in Virginia. Broadly, I am interested in questions of slavery, race, gender, citizenship, and feminist approaches to the study of political economy in the Atlantic World.


I am a James B. Duke fellow and a founding member of Duke's Working Group in Slavery, War, and Gender. Based primarily in the Department of History, I am also pursuing certificates in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies and in Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
