My research is concerned with capitalism’s relationship to both economic and non-economic social inequality. I am interested in how 18th and 19th century political economic thought has shaped contemporary understandings of race, wealth and poverty. Understanding these legacies may reveal the modern cultural and political conditions that condone death and subordination of some in the name of life and liberty for others.
