Sophie Sapp Moore: Free Soil and Agrarian Abundance in Central Haiti
Thursday, September 19, 2019
12 a.m.-1 p.m.
Banquet Room, University Club
In this Friday Lunch talk, part of a larger book project, Sophie Sapp Moore works through some of these overlapping meanings of tè to show how the idea of racial freedom took shape in postcolonial Haiti. She uses archival and ethnographic analysis to extend the legal concept of “free soil,” thinking expansively about the grounding of racial freedom in agrarian places and its enactment through particular relations between the land and those who work it.
