Dael Norwood, Assistant Professor in the History Department at the University of Delaware
Dael A. Norwood is a historian of the nineteenth-century United States,
specializing in the global dimensions of American politics and
economics. He earned his doctorate at Princeton University in 2012.
Norwood is now finishing his first book, entitled Trading in Freedom: How Trade with China Defined Early America. Under contract with the University of Chicago Press, Trading in Freedom
examines how the flourishing commerce between the United States and
China intertwined with the struggles over sovereignty, citizenship and
race that defined the first century of the American state. He is also
working on a new project that uses print culture conversations about
capitalism as a career in order to understand how "the businessman"
became such a potent political and cultural identity in America.
