Hiding in Plain Sight: Black Women, the Law, and the Making of a White Argentine Republic

March 25, 2021
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Professor Erika Denise Edwards, University of North Carolina-Charlotte, will be joining us to present a gendered analysis of black invisibility in Argentina. This talk focuses on Black and African descended women who actively partook in the construction of racial identities during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Focused on the household and intimate relationships that ensued, Edwards argues, that Black and African descended concubines, wives, mothers, and daughters are central to understanding the making of a white Argentine nation. 

This talk is part of the Latin American Studies Program at WashU Zoom Lecture Series on Race & Ethnicity.
