Jasmine Syedullah: “‘Not Contraband, but Soldier’: Against the Domestic Violence of National Security”

November 4, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

| Humanities 1, Room 210 | Free

Jasmine Syedullah’s current project, “No Selves to Defend: Fugitive Justice and Black Feminist Loopholes of Abolition” is a political theory of abolition rooted in the antislavery writings of Harriet Jacobs, the anti-prison testimonies of political prisoners Angela Davis, Assata Shakur, and narratives from the 1971 uprising at Alderson Federal Reformatory for Women.

Syedullah is a UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of English at UC Riverside.

The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.
