Join us for a reading and reception celebrating the release of Tess Chakkalakal’s "Novel Bondage: Slavery, Marriage, and Freedom in Nineteenth-Century America." "Novel Bondage" may be purchased at the Bowdoin Bookstore and at the event.
Tess Chakkalakal is Associate Professor of Africana Studies and English, and Director of the Africana Studies Program at Bowdoin. Her research and teaching focus on American and African American literature from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth.
“Novel Bondage,” examines the interconnections between marriage, slavery, and freedom through renewed readings of nineteenth-century novels and short stories by black and white authors.
