"From Dutch colonists in New Amsterdam and Cyptro-Jews in Mexico to the migration of free women of color from Haiti and the establishment of Afro-Brazilian fraternal organizations after abolition, Crossings and Encounters offers an excellent transnational look at interactions of race, gender, and sexuality, as people and ideas crisscrossed the Atlantic in the early modern and modern world."—James N. Green, Brown University
"A marvelous collection of essays that illuminates how the Atlantic World, with its transnational exchanges and encounters, has shaped modern ideas about race, gender, and sexuality."—Catherine Brekus, Harvard University
"This impressive set of essays demonstrates the ways ordinary people have asserted themselves while moving across, around and through Atlantic spaces for five centuries. Readers will appreciate how individual experiences illuminate broader patterns in the shaping of new gendered, sexual and racial identities."—Jon Sensbach, University of Florida
