Women, Gender, and Sexuality: Wicked Flesh: Black Women, Intimacy, and Freedom in the Atlantic World
The first Women, Gender, and Sexuality event of the academic year celebrates Jessica Marie Johnson's recent book Wicked Flesh: Black Women, Intimacy, and Freedom in the Atlantic World (2020, UPenn). Johnson, an assistant professor of history at Johns Hopkins University, will be joined by a panel, including:
- Sharon Achinstein, a professor of English at Johns Hopkins University
- Emma Bilski, a graduate student in history at Johns Hopkins University
- Sarah Haley, an associate professor of African American studies and gender studies and associate director of the Center for the Study of Women at UCLA
- Christina Sharp, a professor of humanities, especially Black studies and English literature, at York University
Wicked Flesh is Johnson's first book, but it builds upon work she has done as editor, curator, and organizer of print and digital humanities projects, including <africandiasporaphd.com>, <electricmarronage.com>, and special issues of sx:archipelagos and The Black Scholar.
