What I Am Thinking About Now: Nicole Burrowes, “On the Meanings of Solidarity”

“On the Meanings of Solidarity”

 Nicole Burrowes’s research examines a series of labor rebellions that took place in 1930s British Guiana. She is writing a relational history of Africans and Indians—through the lens of solidarity—that does not ignore, erase, or diminish ethnic identification. Using her research as a window, Nicole will explore the possibilities, power, limitations—and impossibilities (as some might argue)—of the politics of solidarity. This research also raises larger questions about racial formation, colonialism, racial hierarchies, conflict narratives and the challenge of history.

“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.
