What I Am Thinking About Now: Monica Martinez, "Mapping Violence: Elucidating Constitutive Regimes of Racial Violence in Texas"

Hillel Meeting Room (2nd Floor), 80 Brown Street

Monica Martinez, Assistant Professor of American Studies and Ethnic Studies

Martinez will discuss her newest manuscript chapter that explores intersecting histories of violent policing regimes in the creation of race in Texas. She will also outline the advances of the digital project Mapping Violence, an interactive platform that recovers and makes visible lost and obscured histories of racial violence in Texas from 1900 - 1930. Her talk will engage questions of method, narrative, segregated histories, and the multiple lives of academic research.

“What I Am Thinking About Now” is an on-going informal workshop/seminar series to which faculty and graduate students are invited to present and discuss recently published work and work in progress.
