Amy Chazkel, "For the Love of the Public": Urban Community and a Stay-at-Home Order in Nineteenth-Century Brazil

Jonathan Metzl, Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America's Heartland

From guns to night-time lighting, this panel turns to the effect that infrastructures of policing and violence have on the shape of the polis and, in the context of the Americas, on the racial ideologies that define it. Speakers will examine how urban space and its supposed rural other engender forms of what we might call “anti-care," including violence,  in the contexts of 19th-century Brazil and contemporary United States.
