Unearthing Blackness: Race, Mining Toxicity and the Biogeopolitics of Health in the Dominican Republic
@ 1:15 PM
via Zoom

Zoom Lecture by Dr. Saudi Garcia, Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellow, The New School, Department of Anthropology. While the Caribbean is imagined as a paradisaic site of leisure, this talk demonstrates how racial capitalism and coloniality in the archipelago are creating toxic landscapes where extraction, climate change and medical suffering powerfully intersect. It develops the framework of “biogeopolitics” to examine how Dominicans and Haitians experience the chronic illnesses and traumatic stresses that accompany mining pollution and the fight for medical access and environmental justice. Presented by Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) . Zoom registration required
