Deirdre Cooper Owens: Slavery’s Hospitality and the Extraction of the Black Body

March 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us to engage with Lincoln, NE-based, internationally renowned scholar Deirdre Cooper Owens’s critical consideration of a salient contradiction at the heart of the institution and practice of slavery: the production of disability. Cooper Owens will explore the relationship between hospitality’s double edge and the ideological construction of Black bodies, their value, and Black life.
