Open Access Article: Christopher Trigg's "The Racial Politics of Resurrection in the Eighteenth-Century Atlantic World"

June 26, 2020

Scholars specializing in early American literature have a duty to the public to raise awareness of how past events and beliefs impact our current lives-- especially in the midst of a global pandemic and nationwide protests against systemic racism. This is why EAL has decided to provide Christopher Trigg’s essay, “The Racial Politics of Resurrection in the 18th-Century Atlantic World” open-access on our website. Through its emphasis on the bias prevalent in 18th-century Protestant beliefs about the afterlife, this essay demonstrates persistent interdependencies between racism and religion.

EAL would like to thank the UNC Press for supporting our efforts to make academia accessible to all.
