About Linda K Salvucci

Even before transatlantic studies became popular, I was teaching and writing about interactions between the First British Empire and Bourbon Spain, New Spain and Cuba.
For my long-term book project, 'Ironies of Empire: the United States - Cuba Trade in a New Atlantic World, 1760-1868,' I have worked in archives not only in the eastern United States, but also in Spain, Mexico, Cuba, and Great Britain. Commercial exchanges and comparative ideologies are my particular focus, as the Atlantic world moved away from mercantilism towards free trade.
