[IHGMS] Race and Representation: A Roundtable with Jacob Dlamini, Caryl Phillips, and Manisha Sinha
Webinar Event: Race and Representation: A Roundtable with Jacob Dlamini, Caryl Phillips, and Manisha Sinha This event is organized by the IHGMS 2020-21 Five College Working Group on Race and Representations, co-directed by Whitney Battle-Baptiste and Stephen Clingman. (For more information: https://www.umass.edu/ihgms/ihgms-current-five-college-working-group-2020-2021-race-and-representations) After the murder of George Floyd, questions of police brutality and systemic racism in the United States have convulsed the country. These questions have been on the agenda for a long time—as long ago as the founding of the country and the Civil War. Around the world the history of race has been central. How is race connected to representation, whether as a matter of social structure or the ways in which different races are imaged in public discourse? For the past year an interdisciplinary group of scholars hosted by the IHGMS has been engaged in exploring these questions. Now we host three distinguished speakers whose work is centrally involved with these issues. Please join us for a conversation of importance to us all in these times.
