Homegrown Humanities with Elizabeth Hordge-Freeman
Race and Politics of Knowledge Production: Diaspora and Black Transnational Scholarship in the United States and Brazil
Wednesday, Feb. 17
Grace Allen Room (Library, 4th Floor)
Refreshments served at 3:00 pm - Lecture begins at 3:30 pm
Hordge-Freeman discusses her book involving invited contributors of African descent from the United States and Brazil to reflect on their multidimensional experiences in the field as researchers, collaborators, and allies to communities of color. Contributors promote an interdisciplinary perspective, as they represent the fields of sociology, political science, anthropology, and the humanities. these invited contributors engage W.E.B. Du Bois' notion of 'second-sight', which suggests that the unique positionality of Black researchers might provide them with advantages in their empirical observations and knowledge production.
