Rosalind J. Beiler – Associate Professor of History, University of Central Florida (Co-Principal Investigator). Beiler is a historian of the early modern Atlantic world. Her research focuses on migration flows to the British colonies - especially from the German-speaking regions of Europe. Her book Immigrant and Entrepreneur: The Atlantic World of Caspar Wistar, 1650-1750 is a microhistory about how Wistar adapted knowledge from Europe to British North America. Beiler is currently studying the ways religious communication networks found in PRINT shifted migration flows in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
