RACIAL CAPITALISM EVENT
Join us for our fourth event of the quarter on Thursday, May 3 from 4-6 pm SS&H Conference Room 2203.
Presenter: Destin Jenkins (History, University of Chicago)
Faculty Commentator: Julie Sze (American Studies)
Graduate Student Commentator: Mia Dawson (Geography Graduate Group)
Paper: “Bonded Metropolis: Debt, Redevelopment, and Racial Inequality in Postwar San Francisco”
This initiative brings UC Davis faculty and graduate students together with outside scholars and activists to advance a research agenda that focuses on racial capitalism. The historical relationship between race and capitalism is one of the most enduring and controversial debates in U.S. historiography. Sometimes explicitly, often only implicitly acknowledged, it shapes fundamental questions about inequality, value, life, bondage, and freedom, among others, across the disciplines of race and ethnic studies, history, literary studies, law, economics, sociology and anthropology.
