2018 Gabler Lecture. Civil Rights as Geospatial Work: The African American Freedom Struggle as Counter-Mapping and Radical Place-Making
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: Morgan Hall, Room 109
Description: Civil Rights struggles, whether spectacular moments of formal protest or the daily acts of defiance, often involve the strategic planning and mobilization of resources, bodies and information.

In other words, African American resistance was and is a matter of work, the product and process of physical, emotional and social labor. Dr. Alderman examines the materiality and spatiality of this resistance, and argues for an examination of the struggle for civil rights as “geospatial work."
