Short presentation

My work explores the ways in which white ignorance is manifested through the landscape of commemoration and the ways in which it is challenged. My dissertation examines efforts to memorialize the history of slavery and colonialism in Europe, where these histories continue to be hidden. I am interested in projects that recontextualize Europe in time (by historicizing it) and space (as a project inseparable from other and othered geographies) thus revealing its multicultural underpinning.

Keywords: whiteness public space feminist post-colonial theories collective memory epistemic injustice
