IHS Workshop: "Enslaved Women and the Politics of Self-Liberation" by Dr. Barbara Krauthamer, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Mon, October 17, 2011 • 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM • GAR 4.100
Dr. Barbara Krauthamer received her Ph.D. from Princeton in 2000 and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her main area of interest is the history of slavery and emancipation in the Americas. Her current book project is a study of runaway slave women in the U.S. from the 1780s to 1861 in which she offers a comprehensive study of existing sources that reveal how enslaved African and African American women conceptualized and experienced self-liberation. This groundbreaking work will add to our understanding of African and African American women’s political activism, as well as the literature on slavery and slave resistance.
