About the Author

Daniel Hershenzon teaches in the Literatures, Cultures, and Languages Department at the University of Connecticut.


"A serious, probing look at early modern Mediterranean slavery. Daniel Hershenzon locates new and highly personalized sources within the vast bureaucratic archives of Spain and then wields them to identify and theorize the expectations and logics of behavior that underlay the captives' struggles to obtain freedom."-James Amelang, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid

"Daniel Hershenzon persuasively shows how captivity both tore slaves from their communities and connected those communities across the Western Mediterranean. Extensively researched and bracingly argued, The Captive Sea demonstrates the agency and impact of captives in an enduringly entangled Mediterranean world."-Barbara Fuchs, University of California, Los Angeles
