A free public lecture March 15 will draw on a research project investigating the legal and media archives of three cases of police violence against Black women and girls in Canada.
Criminology professor Stephanie Latty of X University will present “Care as a ‘Text for Living’: Black Feminisms, Violence and Liberation” over Zoom at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
“I draw on Black feminist articulations of care as a politicized ethics with which to approach and intervene in questions of gendered anti-Black state violence,” says Dr. Latty. “I discuss the emergent possibilities that a Black feminist ethics of care can create, and attend to the need to abolish carceral systems impacting Black women and girls.”
A question-and-answer session will follow her presentation.
The event is sponsored by Women's and Gender Studies in the School of Social Work, the Department of History, and the Office of the Vice-President, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in observance of an Intersectional International Women's Day.
