Com - licensed to Universitetsbiblioteket i Tromso - PalgraveConnect - 2011-03-14 24 25 Evasion-via-expansion is, of course, a hallmark of Emerson’s oeuvre, but its implications for his writings on race and reform are nonetheless worthy of closer scrutiny: partly because this narrative strategy codes race as supplemental to cosmopolitan geopolitical contexts, but, even more important, because it embeds problems of racial difference and possibilities for their reform in discourses of emotion. Another way of coming at this is to point out that Emerson’s expansive placeholder looks very much like the dialectic of (unraced) universal and (raced) particular Posnock argues is constituent of the cosmopolitanism displayed by turn-of-the-century black intellectuals such as Du Bois.

He certainly acknowledges that the abolition of slavery was a necessary step in enhancing, however gradually, the quality of life for African Americans, but he also notes that it did not erase the pecuniary benefit to whites of maintaining a belief in black inferiority. In his 1940 essay collection Dusk of Dawn, looking back on more than a half-century of his own research on black poverty, Du Bois writes: I think it was in Africa that I came more clearly to see the close connection between race and wealth.

Emerson’s critique of the commercial excesses and love-ofluxury induced by slavery in the West Indies is acute throughout the address, no doubt because, as I noted in the opening section of this chapter, he believed and feared the United States would become economically and morally handicapped by its continued dependence on Southern slave labor. Emerson’s economic arguments often are accompanied by essentialist descriptions of enslaved Africans. The subtext of his characterization, never directly stated, is that their subordinate status as manual laborers has been somehow preordained— perhaps by themselves.
