State of the Art: Race and the Early Modern World with Dr. Kim Hall and Dr. Jennifer Morgan

 

Kim F. Hall is the Lucyle Hook Chair of English and a Professor of Africana Studies at Barnard College. Her presentation, entitled Eating the Other: Race, Sugar and Labor in the Early Modern Caribbean, argues that the distinction between proper enjoyment of the world's bounty and luxurious excess that undergirds early modern food discourses is central to examining England's creations of slave societies in the early modern Caribbean; it explores the role of food writing in creating white mastery in the early modern world and now.

 

Jennifer Morgan is professor in the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis and the Department of History at NYU. Her paper, Calculating Intimacies: Race, Gender, and Fungibilities in the Early Modern English Atlantic World, explores the relationship between emerging seventeenth century economic formations and the language and practice of hereditary racial slavery. She examines the connections between markets and human chattel as they took form in the Atlantic world.
