Charlton W. Yingling

Dr. Charlton W. Yingling is an assistant professor of history at the University of Louisville. His publications examine race, revolutions, religiosity, and animals’ influences upon human societies across the Americas. He has conducted research in two dozen archives across Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Spain, the Vatican, the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, and Australia.

His first book, Siblings of Soil: Dominicans & Haitians in the Age of Revolutions (Austin: University of Texas Press, 2022), investigates overlooked popular collaboration on Hispaniola, which eventually produced one of the most unique and liberatory movements for independence and emancipation. His articles appear in History Workshop Journal, Past & Present, Historical Journal, Early American Studies, Atlantic Studies, the Oxford Bibliographies, and Sociales (Dominican Republic). He coedited Free Communities of Color and the Revolutionary Caribbean (New York: Routledge, 2018). His research has been funded by the Ministry of Culture and Education of Spain, the Conference on Latin American History, the Bilinski Foundation, the Academy of American Franciscan History, the Harvard University Atlantic History Seminar, and the John Carter Brown Library, among others.
