CSWG Public Lecture: Prof. Hazel Carby - “Imperial Sexual Economies: Enslaved and Free Women of Color on a Jamaican Coffee Plantation, 1800-1834”
Online - Link to be confirmed

Professor Hazel V. Carby is the Charles C. and Dorothea S. Dilley Professor Emeritus of African American Studies and Professor Emeritus of American Studies Yale University and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts.

She is the author of Imperial Intimacies, A Tale of Two Islands (Verso, 2019) selected as one of the “Books of the Year for 2019,” by the Times Literary Supplement. Winner of the British Academy’s Nayef Al-Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding, 2020, Finalist John Hope Franklin Publication Prize, ASA, 2020, and Shortlisted for the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize, 2020.

Imperial Intimacies is a history of empire, told through one woman’s search through generations of family stories. It moves between Jamaican plantations, the countryside of Devon, the port cities of Bristol, Cardiff and Kingston, and the working-class estates of South London. It is an intimate personal history and a sweeping summation of the violent entanglements of two islands. It charts the British empire’s interweaving of capital and bodies, public language and private feeling.

CSWG Seminar: "Gender, Displacement and Feminist Methodologies: Researching Border Struggles of Women and LGBTQ Migrants"
Zoom

Gender, Displacement and Feminist Methodologies: Researching Border Struggles of Women and LGBTQ Migrants

This webinar offers a panel of three presentations by feminist ethnographers in sociology and anthropology from India, Italy and Bangladesh. The researchers will present from their doctoral and post-doctoral research on how refugee policy is gendered in India, Italy and the UK, how women and LGBTQI migrants from the global South respond to such policies, and how we can use their narratives of border struggles ethically without producing epistemic violence. The papers focus on three feminist studies in migration and refugee studies: one doctoral study with Mediterranean migrant women and LGBTQI lived experiences in Italian border, one postdoctoral research with LGBTQ asylum-seekers and undocumented migrant women in the UK, and one doctoral study with Afghan women refugees in Delhi and Assam (India).

Chair: Dr Stavroula Tsirogianni, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, Chinese University of Hongkong and Shenzen, China

  • "Migrant women’s ways out of violence: drawing a feminist ethnography at the eastern border of Italy" - Veronica Saba, University of Trieste. Italy
  • "Studying gendered borders: Challenges in narrating ordeals of undocumented women and LGBTQ-asylum seekers in higher education in Britain" - Rumana Hashem, Rights Lab, University of Nottingham, UK
