The Relationship between Atlantic History and the Study of the Nineteenth-Century South

(p.129) 6 Ending with a Whimper, Not a Bang
The American South and the Atlantic World

University Press of Florida

This historiographical chapter argues that, for all its many achievements, Atlantic History’s early modern fixation has exacerbated an unhelpful division between American colonial historians, who have been increasingly committed to Atlanto-centric perspectives, and colleagues working in the later nineteenth century and beyond, who use such paradigms relatively rarely. Like many chapters in the book, it suggests there is great potential in a more elastic temporal approach to the Atlantic World among southern, and other, historians.
