I am very pleased to invite you to the upcoming symposium, Scenes at 20.
This symposium celebrates the 20th anniversary of Saidiya Hartman’s
Scenes of Subjection: Terror, Slavery, and Self-Making in
Nineteenth-Century America (Oxford, 1997) and its significance to
studies of Black lives in the past, present, and future. Please join us
as we consider the work’s impact within its intergenerational
intellectual context and theorize new possibilities for Black life and
Black freedom in these perilous times.
Here are the date and location details:
October 6 & 7, 2017
New Brunswick Theological Seminary
35 Seminary Place
New Brunswick, NJ 08901
