Lecture: Agnes Lugo-Ortiz, “Slave Portraiture”

Clark/Oakley Humanities Fellow Agnes Lugo-Ortiz presents, “Slave Portraiture at the Thresholds of Emancipation (A Caribbean Meditation).”

This talk will address the visualization of enslaved subjects in portraiture during the period of emancipation in the Caribbean. It will underscore the conflictive political forces, affective dynamics, and aesthetic principles at work in the composition of the images and the limits these drew for the visual configuration of black people as subjects of freedom.

Tuesday October 17 5:30-6:30pm
