Brown-bag: Samantha Payne: "Reconstruction as the Last Atlantic Revolution"
In this informal presentation and Q&A, research fellow Samantha Payne discusses her dissertation, which explores the Atlantic history of Reconstruction between 1861 and 1912. She argues that following emancipation, planters and capitalists in the United States, Cuba, and Brazil collaborated to implement racially discriminatory legislation. This wave of state building was designed to counter a black freedom movement that threatened the survival of plantation capitalism in the Atlantic World.
