jacob brandler is a doctoral candidate in history at the University of Oxford and a postgraduate member of the Rothermere American Institute, researching the exclusive nature of American equality as a nexus in the thinking of White American polygenists and Black American nationalists that interacted with several paradigm shifts (the rise of materialism/empiricism, innate democracy, and the intensification of the slavery issue) in the period before the American Civil War, 1837 to 1861.
