Biography


Clifton E. Sorrel III is a second-year Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin. He studies the African Diaspora, slavery, and empire in the seventeenth and eighteenth-century Atlantic world. I am generally interested in enslaved peoples' diasporic politics and freedom practice in the entanglements of Atlantic empires.
