This event is taking place as part of UGA’s Latinx Heritage Month activities. Space is limited so please reserve your spot to attend!

Dr. Tamara Walker will join us to discuss her most recent bookExquisite Slaves: Race, Clothing, and Status in Colonial Lima (Cambridge, 2017). Walker's scholarship focuses on three interrelated thematic areas: the history of slavery and freedom in Latin America; the process of racial formation in the region; and the ways in which gender shaped the experience of enslavement and racialization.

This talk will be presented remotely via Zoom, space will be limited.


Graduate students in history who attend will receive a copy of the book in advance. A short presentation about the book will be followed by a Q&A session and general conversation.

This talk is part of a series on Gender, Race, and Slavery in the Atlantic World, presented by the History and Gender Workshop, and funded by a Faculty Research Seminar Grant from the University of Georgia’s Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.
