Henry Trotter's Web Book


Henry Trotter in Udaipur, Rajasthan - India I am Henry Trotter, a Ph.D. student of African history at Yale University. I hail from Camarillo, California (USA), but have been living in Africa for 8 of the last 13 years. This web site shares some aspects my life, relationships, travels, scholarship, and publications that have made the journey so gratifying to this point. (Hope you don't mind, but I left out the boring and rubbishy bits.)

Click on any heading above to take a scroll through my bio; meet some of the family and my wonderful wife; visit some of the places I've recently traveled to in Africa, Asia, and the high seas; peruse what occupies my scholarly attention; peek at some of the publications that I've recently foisted on the world; or contact me.

This is a celebration of the people and places that have made me who I am. It has lots of pics and plenty of jibber-jabber.
