Seminar: Blue Humanities (Lecture) (RUNOMI)

Event: Tuesday 19 January 2021 - online

On January 19, 2021, dr. Justine Bakker and RUNOMI-member dr. Joris Schapendonk will engage the blue humanities from their respective research foci.

In conversation with the black studies scholarship of Jonathan Howard and Joshua Bennett, Justine Bakker will look at the religio-cultural works of visual artist Ellen Gallagher to ask what concepts, considerations and concerns emerge when we take the oceanic environment of the Middle Passage as starting point. Joris Schapendonk, in turn, engages this question by drawing on his research on contemporary African migrations across the Mediterranean Sea.

Staging a conversation between social geography, black studies, and religious studies, this seminar will consider both the potential benefits and opportunities as some of the limitations and blind spots of blue humanities scholarship.
