Jennifer Morgan is working on a history of racial ideology, gender, and numeracy in the early modern Atlantic, in which she argues that the slave trade emerged from the ideologies of race and enumeration. Thus, the transatlantic slave trade is rooted in the logics of capitalism, and capitalism itself relies on the human fungibility embedded in the slave trade.
