ACLA Seminar: Geographies of Racial Capitalism: Labor, Caste, Dispossession

updated: 
Wednesday, October 21, 2020 - 12:20pm

We understand racial capitalism as a global phenomenon hinged on long, connected histories of dispossession and labor across geographies and temporalities. Cedric Robinson’s pioneering Black Marxism emphasizes the tendency for capitalism “not to homogenize but to differentiate–to exaggerate regional, subcultural, and dialectical differences into racial ones.” Investigating how capital draws upon differences within Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean attunes us to otherwise obscured dynamics. What histories, archives, literatures, and methods expand the vocabulary for racial capitalism to account for the specificities of diverse contexts?

“Memory believes before knowing remembers, believes longer than recollects, longer than knowing even wonders.” In this passage from Light in August, Faulkner articulates memory’s persistence. His recognition that emotionally charged memories linger even as details fade is why, for Faulkner, “the past is never dead. It’s not even past.”
