    Ed Clough, lecture: White Maps, Black Routes: African-American Space and Resistance in New Orleans and the Deep South Plantation.

    Contrasting the structures and spaces of the Deep South plantation and the city of New Orleans, both historically and in the present day, this lecture draws on African-American domestic experience, music, and place within the tourist industry, to examine how southern African-American culture has used and ‘owned’ everyday spaces to resist spatial oppression.

    Followed by Café Conversation:

    To what extent is racial identity and its expression a product of spatial environment?

    The Café Conversation will take place in Café Bar Marzano in The Forum 15 minutes after the lecture ends. Tea and coffee will be provided.
