Sexuality & Slavery: Exposing the History of Enslaved People in the Americas

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

A conference at The University of Texas at Austin, November 11- 12, 2011

This symposium places sexuality at the center of slavery studies in the Americas. In many mainstream histories of slavery, scholars have marginalized or simply overlooked the importance of sexual practices. But sexual intimacy comprised a core terrain of struggle between slaveholders and the enslaved. Members of the slaveholding class often intervened in the most intimate areas of slave life. Such intrusions were often linked to the question of how enslaved populations reproduced, literally, wealth for slaveholders. But interference in the sexual lives of the enslaved could also be a tool of power, unrelated to reproduction.
