Jim Stewart taught about the Western Hemisphere and the United States prior to the 20th century, emphasizing the topics of race, politics, law and social movements. He also has an interest in comparative indigenous civilizations, processes of conquest and labor systems in the U.S, the Caribbean and Latin America. His books and articles address the abolitionist movement in the U.S. and the politics of the conflict over slavery and the struggles for racial justice. In 2008 he completed a half-time appointment as James Wallace Professor of History, devoted largely to research, writing, editing and consulting for foundations.
