The Early Atlantic world witnessed unprecedented changes in mobility, allowing people, goods, and ideas to traverse the globe. Such transit thereby created new pathways for exchange. From the spice trade to the slave trade, scholars have traced the movement of bodies and objects (and objectified bodies) throughout and beyond the Atlantic world, highlighting the circulation of goods and their effects on personal, cultural, and national identity. Purdue’s Early Atlantic Reading Group invites explorations of the circulation of material goods and bodies for a graduate student colloquium that emphasizes material culture, literature, and mobility in the Early Atlantic world.
