We know not to judge a book by its cover, but can we judget faculty members by their office doors? Whose door is this?  What kinds of courses does she/he teach?  What kind of research does he/she do? 

This is LRC 5 home to Dr. Jamie Goodall, Assistant Professor in the Public History department. Her research interests include piracy, smuggling, illicit trade, transmission of knowledge, slavery, and the economy in the early modern Atlantic-Caribbean world. She is currently revising her dissertation, titled “‘Navigating the Atlantic World: Piracy, Illicit Trade, and the Construction of Commercial Networks, 1650-1791,″ into a monograph that examines the development of informal commercial networks among pirates, smugglers, merchants, government officials, and residents of the seventeenth and eighteenth century Caribbean-Atlantic, with a transnational focus. Dr. Goodall has traveled to England, the Netherlands, Jamaica, and Bermuda to conduct research. Her work is multidisciplinary, infusing her archaeological, material culture, and public history background into her academic history research. Dr. Goodall incorporates her transnational, interdisciplinary, and Atlantic focus in her teaching, particularly in courses such as Early America (which has a historically Anglo-centric emphasis), African American history, and special topics courses like Piracy in the Caribbean. She loves to engage students with primary source and archaeological material as a means to shift their thinking about history, moving beyond the written word to tell the stories of historically underrepresented and marginalized groups.
