About this title


On the occasion of the tricentennial of the founding of New Orleans, this groundbreaking exhibition catalog celebrates the diversity of the city's earliest populations.

New Orleans, the Founding Era gathers contributions from eight leading scholars of the French Atlantic World and features an illustrated checklist of artifacts from public and private collections across France, Spain, Canada, and the United States. This dual-language publication from The Historic New Orleans Collection explores the ideas, peoples, and material cultures that shaped one of the most complex and challenging colonization projects in the Americas.

As curator at The Historic New Orleans Collection, she was project director of the National Endowment for the Humanities-funded traveling exhibition Purchased Lives: The American Slave Trade from 1808 to 1865. She is the editor of A Company Man: The Remarkable French-Atlantic Voyage of a Clerk for the Company of the Indies and author of Marc-Antoine Caillot and the Company of the Indies in Louisiana: Trade in the French Atlantic World.
