Description

Marisa J. Fuentes’, Dispossessed Lives: Enslaved Women, Violence and the Archive (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2016) is an important new book that challenges historians to think more carefully about the methods and categories with which they have described and analyzed slavery. Marisa Fuentes uses fragmentary evidence about five enslaved women in 18th century Barbados to take up larger questions of agency, violence, the production of knowledge, and gender. At the same time, the book also offers detailed and often surprising stories from an atypical slave society.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
