"Before the Human: Africans, Sovereigns & Slaves"
Talks/Lectures, History/Science

This talk by Dr. Bennett asks how might the focus on eighteenth-century race and commodification obscure earlier and equally expansive ideas about difference and dispossession? In taking up this question as a conceptual starting point, the talk charts a different, if not lost, genealogies of difference and dispossession that defined how Europeans in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries registered their encounter with Africans and subsequently classified some as subjects of sovereigns and other as sovereign-less subjects who could be enslaved. This event is free and open to the public. Room 160.
