Dr. Colleen E. Kriger

Dr. Colleen E. Kriger (History) has published a new book, “Making Money: Life, Death, and Early Modern Trade on Africa’s Guinea Coast,” through Ohio University Press. Kriger’s research reveals the global trade patterns that emerged during the era of Atlantic maritime trade, early  connections between Asian, African and European markets and the individual people who engaged in Anglo-African commerce on the west coast of Africa in the seventeenth century. Kriger has received numerous grants and fellowships in support of her research. Her scholarship and teaching focus on precolonial West and West Central Africa and topics such as social history, comparative slavery, oral history and material culture.
