Lisa Lowe: “Sugar, Tea, Opium, and Coolies: The Intimacies of Four Continents”

Monday, May 20, 2013 4:00p to 5:30p

This lecture examines the fetishism of colonial commodities as a mediation of often obscured connections between the transatlantic African slave trade to the Americas, settler colonialism, the import of Asian indentured labor, the East Indies and China trades, and the emergence of European liberal ideas of citizenship, wage labor, and free trade in the late-18th and early-19th centuries.
