Talk by Professor Joy James

The Center for Women's & Gender Studies and Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice Research Cluster on Women, Gender, and Human Rights invites all interested to attend our final event of the Spring 2011 semester.

The paper, being developed for a forthcoming issue of SIGNS, examines the productive and repoductive labor, feminism, and the erasure, of women activists incarcerated for their roles in twentieth century social and political movements, spanning the eras of activism for: civil rights; prisoners' rights; black liberation; and the Move commune.

Joy James is Professor of Humanities, Williams College, and Visiting Scholar in the African & African Diaspora Studies, UT Austin. James is the author of Resisting State Violence: Shadowboxing: Representations of Black Feminist Politics; editor of the Angela Y. Davis Reader; Imprisoned Intellectuals; States of Confinement; and The New Abolitionists: (Neo)Slave Narratives and Contemporary Prison Writings. She is the founding member of the Texas-based nonprofit, the Harriet Tubman Literary Circle(HTLC), and curator of the HTLC digital repository.
