Intersections of Gender and Race in Irish Genealogies of Slavery in Colonial Cuba
INTERSECTIONS OF GENDER AND RACE IN IRISH GENEALOGIES OF SLAVERY IN COLONIAL CUBA
Please join us for a free hybrid public talk by Dr. Margaret Brehony.
Sponsored by The Moore Instutute, National University of Ireland, Galway; School of Irish Studies, Concordia University, Montreal & Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver.
Speaker: Dr. Margaret Brehony, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Research Fellow
Abstract: The study of migration in colonial Cuba presents an entangled history that raises unacknowledged connections between Caribbean people of African descent and Irish enslavers. This research examines Irish surnames, conceptualised as markers of human property, to open up multiple histories previously erased or submerged in colonial narratives of white colonisation, gender and slavery. She pays particular attention to the asymmetric connections between women of Irish and of African origins shaped through the violent power relations of transatlantic slavery.
