Black Prometheus: Race and Radicalism in the Age of Atlantic Slavery
Sarah Marsh is appointed jointly in AU's Department of Literature and Department of Critical Race, Gender, and Culture Studies, where she teaches at the intersections of literature, medical humanities, and the legal history of the body. Her book project, Constituting White Supremacy: Racemaking and Resistance in Anglo-American Culture, 1660 - 1790 identifies the early modern English ideal of embodied liberty--what the English called their "ancient constitution"--as an important source of white supremacy in the anglophone Atlantic. In support of this project, Dr. Marsh is a 2020 Margaret Henry Dabney Penick Fellow at the Smithsonian Institute Libraries in Washington, DC.
