Lecture: Tamara Walker
"Exquisite Slaves: Race, Clothing, and Status in Colonial Lima," Tamara Walker, associate professor of history, University of Toronto.
Part of a series on Gender, Race, and Slavery in the Atlantic World, presented by the History and Gender Workshop, a Research Seminar of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.
Walker will discuss her most recent book, Exquisite Slaves: Race, Clothing, and Status in Colonial Lima (Cambridge, 2017). Walker's scholarship focuses on three interrelated thematic areas: the history of slavery and freedom in Latin America; the process of racial formation in the region; and the ways in which gender shaped the experience of enslavement and racialization.
This talk will be presented remotely via Zoom, and space will be limited.
