Research Talk with Visiting Scholar Dr. Nadena Doharty
Being constantly angry: Black women’s racialized emotions in race-research
Using a viva question as a starting point, Dr. Nadena Doharty seeks to explore the specific race-gendered challenges black women face in the academy in relation to academic research on race. She will explore how this leads to a ‘double consciousness’ black women become cognizant to and how she and others have drawn upon critical race methodologies in the social sciences in England to illuminate patterns of racial discrimination and structural disadvantage. Dr. Doharty argues that the stereotypical, racialized controlling images regarding black women’s emotions are not exclusive to African-American women and so although these images do not eliminate the master narrative about black women, critical race methodologies do shed light upon positioned and privileged perspectives, ensuring that research is done for rather than on black communities, center the voices of those facing oppression to better understand the changing contours of racism and, serve to counter the repeated and exhausting denials of the very existence of racism.
Reception will follow the research talk. Registration requested at www.bit.ly/ResearchTalkNadenaDoharty062618
