"Trafficking in Race: Locating the Origins of White Slavery, 1660-1720"
A workshop by Prof. Gunther W. Peck, Duke University

Gunther W. Peck is associate professor in the history department and the Terry Sanford Institute for Public Policy at Duke University where he teaches courses in immigration, labor, western, environmental, and policy history. His first book, Reinventing Free Labor: Padrones and Immigrant Workers in the North American West (2000), won the Phillip Taft award in labor history and the Ray Allen Billington award in frontier history. He is currently working on two book projects: a history of white slavery in Great Britain and the U.S. from the 1820s to the present; and an exploration of changing working-class uses and perceptions of nature in North America.
