The manuscript of the book was previously awarded the Hines Prize in 2015 by the College of Charleston, given biennially for the best first manuscript on a topic relating to the Carolina Lowcountry and/or the Atlantic World. His writing appears in several academic journals including Global Networks, the Journal of Southern History, the South Carolina Historical Magazine, and Action Learning: Research and Practice. He has held visiting fellowships at institutions including the University of South Carolina and the Huntington Library, Los Angeles.
