Lisa Lowe, "The Intimacies of Four Continents"
In: 314 Royce Hall
Lisa Lowe's current project, The Intimacies of Four
Continents, is a study of the convergence of colonialisms
in the early Americas as the conditions for modern
humanism and humanistic knowledge. In her talk she will
share part of that project and examine the 'forgetting' of
Asian indentured labor, native-descendant peoples, and
African slavery within modern European liberal discourses
of freedom, and its 'return' in gendered racial taxonomies
that persist within the humanities today.
Lisa Lowe is professor of Comparative Literature at UC San
Diego, and a former chair of the Department of Literature
there. She is an affiliated faculty member in the Ethnic
Studies Department and the program in Critical Gender
Studies. Her research and teaching interests include
modern French, British, and American studies, and the
topic of Asian migration within European and American
modernity. She has published books on orientalism,
immigration, and globalization, including Critical
Terrains: French and British Orientalisms (Cornell, 1991),
Immigrant Acts: On Asian American Cultural Politics (Duke
UP, 1996), a coedited volume The Politics of Culture in
the Shadow of Capital (Duke UP, 1997), and a forthcoming
book, Metaphors of Globalization.
This program is free and open to the public. Seating is
