Lapidus Center Presents: Enslaved Women and the Ethical Practice of History

March 7, 2017 | 6:30pm – 8:30pm

enslaved-womenIn the 18th century, Bridgetown, Barbados was heavily populated by both enslaved and free women. Marisa J. Fuentes, author of “Dispossessed Lives: Enslaved Women, Violence, and the Archive, takes us through the streets of Bridgetown with a runaway; inside a brothel run by a freed woman of color; to the gallows where enslaved people were executed; and within violent scenes of women’s punishments. In the process, she interrogates the archive to expose the ongoing effects of white colonial power that constrain what can be known about these women. Fuentes, Associate Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies and History at Rutgers University, will be in conversation with Jennifer L. Morgan, Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and History at New York University. Lapidus Center Presents is brought to you by the Lapidus Center for the Historical Analysis of Transatlantic Slavery.
