5:00 pm
Upham Hall, 001

Dr. Kars teaches courses in Early American history, Atlantic History, and Women’s History. Her new book is about a massive and nearly successful slave rebellion in a Dutch colony (now the Republic of Guyana) on the Caribbean coast of South America. Blood on the River: A Chronicle of Mutiny and Freedom on the Wild Coast was published by The New Press in August 2020, and came out in a Dutch translation by Atlas Contact in January 2021. NPR included Blood on the River on its “Best Books for 2020″ list.
