Matthew Delvaux is a Lecturer in History and a Cotsen Fellow in the Society of Fellows at Princeton University. He brings interdisciplinary approaches to the study of marginalized peoples and interregional connections, challenging received narratives of the post-Roman world. He is particularly interested in problems of materiality, intertextuality, and data-driven approaches to texts and artifacts. His current work focuses on Viking Age human trafficking that drew captives from Western Europe into the slave markets of the northern ʿAbbāsid frontiers, ca. 750-950 CE.
