Subject: [Milton-L] Milton and Race?

A graduate student has asked me for references to scholarship on 'Milton and Race': nothing came immediately to mind so I turn to the list for help. I will give the student some references to work on Milton and the politics of slavery (Skinner, Dzelainis, Jablonski), but surely somebody has addressed Milton and early modern conceptions of race, or even later uses of Milton in connection to issues of race? I feel like I'm missing something obvious...

Any suggestions appreciated!
