Reproducing Race in the Early Americas
Moderator: Nicole Aljoe, Northeastern University
This roundtable will use the body as frame for examining racial formation in the Caribbean and U.S. from the eighteenth century to the present. The presenters will meditate on biological reproduction in relation to citizenship and subjecthood, labor and economy, medical and scientific knowledge, and representations of blackness in popular culture.
At the end of each program, the organizers will offer light refreshments and time for informal networking.
We look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
