Laura Briggs, "How All Politics Became Reproductive Politics"

Thursday, December 14, 2017 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Pembroke Hall, Room 305, 172 Meeting Street, Providence RI

Today all politics are reproductive politics, argues esteemed feminist critic Laura Briggs. From longer work hours to the election of Donald Trump, our current political crisis is above all about reproduction. Households are where we face our economic realities as social safety nets get cut and wages decline. Briggs brilliantly outlines how politicians’ racist accounts of reproduction—stories of Black “welfare queens” and Latina “breeding machines"—were the leading wedge in the government and business disinvestment in families.
