Dr. Conrad received his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, after completing a bachelor’s degree at Stony Brook State University of New York. His research interests center on Native American history, the history of slavery, and Borderlands history. He is particularly interested in the lives of ordinary people as they crossed borders, encountered newcomers, and negotiated colonialism and empire in the past and present. He is currently working on a book project titled, “Captive Fates: Displaced Apache Indians in Colonial North America and the Caribbean,” which examines the capture, enslavement, and displacement of Apache groups from the North American West from early Spanish colonization through U.S. colonial settlement. His research has been supported by grants and fellowships from such organizations as the Mellon Foundation, the American Philosophical Association, the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, and the Clements Center for Southwest Studies.
