*NEW DATE* Distinguished Visiting Humanist: Hazel Carby

From Kingston to Bristol and Back Again: In the Imperial Archives with Hazel Carby

RSVP required to both Joel Burges (jburges@ur.rochester.edu) and Madeline Ullrich (mullrich@ur.rochester.edu) to secure a place at the event and obtain the reading for it.

Led by Pablo M. Sierra Silva (History) and Miranda Mims (Special Collections), this session will explore a series of questions based on selections both the discussants and participants will have read in advance from Professor Carby’s forthcoming book Imperial Intimacies: A Tale of Two Islands (Verso 2019): How does one do archival research on the culture, politics, and history of race, gender, and empire? What is at stake in doing so? What stories emerge? And how do those stakes and stories differ—and perhaps even conflict—depending on one’s intellectual position? In what ways does the archive work differently for the cultural studies scholar, the historian, and the archivist?
Hazel V. Carby is the Charles C. and Dorathea S. Dilley Professor of African American Studies, Professor of American Studies, and Director of the Initiative on Race, Gender, and Globalization at Yale University. She is one of the most influential scholars of culture and cultural politics of the past forty years. A major force in bringing cultural studies—especially as it descends from her extremely important teacher, Stuart Hall—to the United States, she has shaped generations of scholars through her writing and teaching.
