Atlantic History Group

Atlantic History: This primary goal of this group is to generate innovative scholarship on the relations linking Africa, Europe and the Americas in the development of Western capitalism and modernity. Relevant themes include the expansion of markets during the slave trade; the production of literary texts and forms of historical memory; the politics of religious dissent and conversion; the growth of colonial science and cartography; Native American ethnogenesis; the rise of abolitionist and Pan-African ideologies; and the dynamics of race, gender and creolization throughout the Atlantic world.
