African American Studies Spring Colloquium presents:

Intrusion: Domestic State Violence & Carceral Los Angeles

Sarah Haley

Sarah Haley is Associate Professor of African American Studies and Gender Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). She is also the Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Women. Professor Haley’s research interests are at the intersection of prison studies, nineteenth and twentieth-century African American history, women’s and gender history, labor studies, black feminism, and feminist theories of violence. She is the author of award-winning book No Mercy Here: Gender, Punishment, and the Making of Jim Crow Modernity. Her talk will focus on her new book project that explores the role of mundane and ostentatious forms of police violence and harassment executed in black homes from the 1970s through the 1990s.  In it, she analyzes the relationship between black domesticity, carceral gendering, and carceral state expansion as well as the affective work of life making that black women performed in the face of ubiquitous police violence.
*This talk is co-sponsored with the Center for Race and Gender. A light lunch will be served.
