    • Abstract:
      This article examines literary renderings of African American enslavement as founding articulations of a plausible connection between the institutionalization of sexual violence and racial subordination in slavery and modern theories of sexual difference. It was suggested that representations of sexual perversity under conditions of enslavement have contributed to notions of sexual alterity.
