Allewaert is completing a book that explores how West Indian plantation colonies’ inadvertent proliferation of insects became central to the cultural productions of enslaved, free black, indigenous, and subaltern white stakeholders.
Monique Allewaert studies 18th-century American plantation colonies, especially at the intersections of ecology, race studies, and aesthetics.
