Collegiate Affiliation

I am a historian interested in the relationships between Southeastern American Indians, Europeans, and Africans in the 18th and early 19th centuries. My dissertation examines the social, political, demographic, and ecological transformation of Florida following the introduction of livestock in the sixteenth century through the expulsion of much the region's native inhabitants in the nineteenth century. In addition, I am the creator of Historians At The Movies, a multimedia experience that connects historians and others each week via their favorite films. You can find me on twitter at @herberthistory or look for the hashtag #HATM.
