In this talk, Brown will introduce her new research project, The Subaltern School, in which she undertakes a global socio-historical examination of segregated schooling. In the spirit of the CSAS colloquia, she will “tell about two Souths”: that of the U.S. South and that of South Africa, through their shared struggles over how we “do” history in this integrated, “post-racial” era. Focusing on the current battles over commemorative monuments on college campuses, she will share insights from the #RhodesMustFall movement in South Africa to open a discussion about the current protests over Silent Sam.
Karida Brown is a visiting scholar in UNC’s Department of Sociology. She received her PhD in Sociology from Brown University, and her dissertation received the 2017 American Sociological Association Best Dissertation Award.
