BJ Lillis is a historian of colonial America with a focus on the intersections between slavery, indigenous dispossession, and settler political economy. His dissertation follows the colonization of the Hudson Valley—a strategically vital corridor between a vast continent dominated by indigenous power, and an Atlantic world deeply invested in slavery—from the late 17th-century to the Revolution.
