Race and Rurality in the Global Economy
March 2628, 2015
Duke University, West Duke Building, Room 101
Convened by
Michaeline A. Crichlow and Anne-Maria Makhulu, Duke University
Workshop Description

This day and a half workshop will examine the contemporary state of development, and the fluid zones of rurality in the world economy through the optic of raciality. It will cover notably Asia, Africa and the Americas including the U. S. and the Caribbean.  The arguments considered will pivot on heightened risks and multiple states of insecurity being faced given the forces of globalization and environmental change, and the steady decline in the livelihoods of people of color globally, their deepened vulnerabilities, and the complex reconstitution of systemic and lived racialization within this process.

Keynote Speaker
Professor Philip McMichael (Department of Development Sociology, Cornell University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences)
