Time & Location
About the Event
Deborah A. Thomas (University of Pennsylvania) and Kathryn Yusoff (Queen Mary, University of London) explore topics ranging from long memories, histories, and the environmental impact of racial capitalism.
Through this conversation, the two will think through the geopolitics of the plantation, Witnessing 2.0, the demands of ‘doubt,’ and the inhumanities and Black Anthropocenes within Caribbean and Black diasporic contexts and post/colonial time-spaces.
