Bio

Alisha J. Hines is an assistant professor of History. Her current research interests include gender and slavery in the US, black women’s subversive uses of space and mobility, and their contribution to the hastening conflict over the extension of slavery in the decades before the Civil War. Her work explores the complexities of legal, social, and geographic borders and is currently concerned specifically with the antebellum middle Mississippi River valley. She is currently in the process of revising her manuscript, tentatively titled Geographies of Freedom: Black Women’s Mobility and the Making of the  Western River World.
