Join The Library Company for a Fireside Chat with Caylin Carbonel on October 13th! 

In the kitchens and garrets of colonial New England homes, surrounded by barrels of foodstuffs and other reminders of daily work, slept a diverse group of unfree laborers, some enslaved, others indentured or hired. These laboring women and men—African, Indigenous, and Euro-American—have long remained marginal in histories of colonial New England. In this talk, Dr. Carbonell reveals how we can critically press written and material archives to locate glimpses of the everyday experiences of this racially diverse set of New Englanders who are often treated as absent in colonial archives. By centering unfree people in our understanding of early New England’s early history, she reveals the foundational role they played in the development of the region’s economy and society.
