9780521632133: Romantic Colonization and British Anti-Slavery (Cambridge Studies in Romanticism)

Deirdre Coleman examines Romantic initiatives to establish an empire without slaves, one that would also encompass revolutionary sexual, racial, and labor changes. The loss of Britain's transatlantic empire precipitated much debate about the nature of colonization from 1770 to 1800. Combined with the changing impact of colonialism and immigration in England, the growing popularity of the anti-slavery movement prompted many utopian and Romantic responses to colonization.

The loss of Britain's transatlantic empire precipitated much debate about the nature of colonization in the period 1770-1800. The growing popularity of the anti-slavery movement, combined with the changing impact of colonialism and immigration in England, prompted many utopian and Romantic responses to colonization. Deirdre Coleman examines Romantic initiatives to find ways of founding an empire without slaves, a new world which could also encompass revolutionary sexual, racial, and labour arrangements.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The loss of Britain s North American colonies sparked an intense debate about the nature of colonization in the period 1770-1800. Drawing on archival research into colonies in Africa and Australia, including Sierra Leone and Botany Bay, Deirdre Coleman shows how the growing popularity of the anti-slavery movement gave a utopian cast to the debate about colonization. This utopianism can be seen most clearly in Romantic attempts to found an empire without slaves, a new world which would also encompass revolutionary sexual, racial and labour arrangements. From Henry Smeathman and John Clarkson in Sierra Leone to Arthur Phillip and William Dawes in Botany Bay, Coleman analyses the impact of the discourses and ideals underlying Romantic colonization. She argues that these paved the way for racial strife in West Africa and the eventual dispossession of Australia s native people. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9780521632133
