Dr. Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers is a historian who explores women’s social, economic, and legal relationships to enslaved people and the slave trade in the trans-Atlantic world. She is an Associate Professor and Chancellor’s Professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley, where she specializes in African-American history, women’s and gender history, and the history of American slavery.
Jones-Rogers’ research has been primarily concerned with women and slavery, but her work also explores the evolution and development of early systems of law, especially as they pertain to women, bondage, and the slave trade.
Join us in congratulating her for winning the 2023 Dan David Prize Award. The Dan David Prize recognizes outstanding scholarship
that illuminates the past and seeks to anchor public discourse in a deeper understanding of history.
