In the fall semester, she will lecture on Civil War & Reconstruction and lead a senior seminar on the evolution of slavery in the U.S. Dr. Wood (PhD Texas, 2013) specializes in the legal history of early modern France and its empire in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. In the fall, she will teach a survey of European history from 1500-1800 and a course called "Patriots and Pirates: Law in the Atlantic World." Welcome!
