Necropolitics, Border Walls, and the Murder of Jim and Juan Crows: Geographic Justice Struggles in the Americas

Please join the Committee on Social Theory for the second speaker in our Spring 2023 Speaker Series on the theme of Debility and After/ Alterlives happening on Friday, February 24 at 2 pm ET in the UK Athletics Association Auditorium in the William T. Young Library with Dr. Melissa W. Wright

This series will be featuring guest speakers engaging with how race, gender, class, nation, sexuality, and ability shape which bodies (both human and non-human) are rehabilitatable, which bodies are marked as contagious or toxic and in need of containment, and which bodies are consequently rendered disposable. The framing seminar which incorporates these guest speakers, ST600: Debility and After/ Alterlives, is co-taught by Dr. Crystal Felima, Dr. Nari Senanayake, Dr. Karrieann Soto Vega, and Dr. Anastasia Todd.
