ASA 2015 (Oct 8-11): "Blackness and the Miseries of Law"

updated: 
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - 11:32am
American Studies Association

In the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown, Aiyana Jones, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Tamir Price, Ezell Ford, and too many others, and the ostensible inability of the law or the legal system to provide something resembling "justice" in the aftermath of these deaths by police violence, it is impossible not to consider the implications of a legally imposed condition of misery on Black bodies in the U.S. This panel takes up the meeting's call to consider a "long and changing past" of misery by asking how the historical imbrication of U.S. law and race - most obvious and yet still most crucial to analyze in slavery - further structures conditions of misery for Black Americans.
