Slavery and the Art of Race
October 20, 2017
11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Location: Berkley Center Third Floor Conference Room
Philippa Levine’s work underscores the long association between nakedness, race, and slavery. She argues that nakedness was a key historical construct on which morality, aesthetics, and scientific practice have drawn significantly. During this talk, Levine discussed these ideas as she engaged the audience in a conversation around the question provocatively asked by Marcus Woods: “What do we want to learn from the visual archive of slavery?”
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Australian, New Zealand, and Pacific Studies.
