What exactly is Atlantic World history? Great question! During the late 20th century, many historians concluded that you can’t just look at the history of the Americas in isolation. From the 15th century onward, the Americas, Europe, and Africa were connected by commerce and conquest.

I earned my Master of Arts in History in May 2022 with a 4.0 department GPA. My studies focused on Colonial America, but also included graduate level coursework studying the Atlantic World. My master’s thesis was on Lord Dunmore’s War, an Indian War that took place at the same time the first Continental Congress was meeting. In that thesis, and with all my work, I endeavor to fairly portray everyone involved in conflicts. I don’t shy away from hard truths, though sometimes it can be challenging to explain them to kids. I’m also a homeschool mom of two – one kiddo is a sensitive soul and the other is a little firecracker, so I know different kids require different approaches.

History isn’t always pretty, and I believe in teaching it honestly. This class will discuss topics like rape, STDs (as part of Columbian Exchange), slavery, and land theft. While the lectures aren’t excessively graphic, it is important that students are emotionally mature enough for the discussion. If you have any concerns about whether this would be a good fit for your child, please feel free to message me before enrolling.
