*[Many thanks to Peter Jordens for the following information.] The Lapidus
Center for the Historical Analysis of Transatlantic Slavery at the
Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture (The New York Public
Library) presents “Enslaved Women and the Ethical Practice of History,” a
conversation between Marisa J. Fuentes, author of Dispossessed Lives:
Enslaved Women, Violence, and the Archive and Jennifer L. Morgan, author
of Laboring Women: Gender and Reconstruction in New World Slavery. This
event takes place on Tuesday, March 7, 2017, 6:30-8:30pm. The Schomburg
Center is located at 515 Malcolm X Boulevard, New York, New York.*

*Description*: In the 18th century, Bridgetown, Barbados was heavily
populated by both enslaved and free women. Marisa J. Fuentes, author
of *Dispossessed
Lives: Enslaved Women, Violence, and the Archive* (UPenn Press, 2016),
takes us through the streets of Bridgetown with a runaway; inside a brothel
run by a freed woman of color; to the gallows where enslaved people were
executed; and within violent scenes of women’s punishments. In the process,
she interrogates the archive to expose the ongoing effects of white
colonial power that constrain what can be known about these women. Fuentes,
Associate Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies and History at Rutgers
University, will be in conversation with Jennifer L. Morgan, Professor of
Social and Cultural Analysis and History at New York University and author
of *Laboring Women: Gender and Reconstruction in New World Slavery* (UPenn
Press, 2004).

*Marisa J. Fuentes* is Associate Professor of women’s and gender studies
and history at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Fuentes is the author
of *Dispossessed
Lives: Enslaved Women, Violence, and the Archive *(University of
Pennsylvania Press, 2016).

*Jennifer L. Morgan* is Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and
History at New York University. She received her PhD from Duke University
and is the author of *Laboring Women: Gender and Reconstruction in New
World Slavery* (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2004).
