Alys Eve Weinbaum
In The Afterlife of Reproductive Slavery: Biocapitalism and Black Feminism's Philosophy of History (Duke University Press), University of Washington Professor Alys Eve Weinbaum investigates the “continuing resonances of Atlantic slavery in the cultures and politcs of human reproduction.”
“In this innovative and ambitious book Alys Eve Weinbaum expands our understanding of the black radical tradition while pushing it in a distinctly feminist direction. The Afterlife of Reproductive Slavery is an important work that will have major reverberations in black studies, literary studies, feminist theory, and postcolonial studies.” — Saidiya Hartman.
She is also the author of Wayward Reproductions and co-editor of The Modern Girl Around the World: Consumption, Modernity, and Globalization, both also published by Duke University Press.
