Freedom is a Place! Abolition Geography

AAS 406/AMS 429

Info tab content
Abolitionist geographer Ruth Wilson Gilmore asks: How do we find the place of freedom? And more precisely, how do we make such a place repeatedly? This seminar invites students to meditate on the above questions by applying abolition geographic thought to their research and thinking. We will consider how/why freedom becomes a place by engaging a range of geographic struggles, contemplating the capacity to (re)make such places across time/space. Students will have the opportunity to collaborate and present their research, contributing to forming more intellectually creative and active spaces not bound by institutional boundaries.
