Emily E. M. Kamm is a PhD student in the Department of History at Northwestern University, studying the early modern circum-Caribbean. Her research explores questions of environmental meaning-making in an era of mass migration and landscape transformation. A current project explores late sixteenth-century Panama, where groups of African fugitives negotiated with Spanish officials over where would be a healthy and fruitful place to settle as free subjects.
