FRANK "TREY" PROCTOR III is professor and current holder of the William T. Utter/Clyde E. Williams, Jr. Endowed Professorship in History at Denison University and earned his PhD in Latin American history from Emory University (2003). His research interests focus on the experiences of enslaved persons of African descent in colonial Spanish America. His first book, "Damned Notions of Liberty": Slavery, Culture, and Power in Colonial Mexico, 1640–1769 (University of New Mexico Press, 2010), focuses on the lived experiences of enslaved people in central New Spain.

In so doing, he seeks to identify both broader imperial patterns and local particularities in the nature and meaning of these lawsuits.
