The Peripheries Within: Race, Slavery, and Empire in Early Modern England.

"The Peripheries Within" analyzes visual and literary representations of black slaves produced in early modern England as a lens into popular beliefs about race, slavery, and empire from the late seventeenth to the early nineteenth centuries. The NEH summer grant would be used to complete a book chapter (“Ideologies of Mastery: Slavery, Empire, and Virtue in Pre-Abolitionist Britain”) which will reconstruct public debates over slavery in English and Scottish journals from the 1690s to the 1770s. This chapter will provide a badly needed pre-history to the abolitionist movement. It will be the basis for an article and several conference papers.
