Merrill Contributes Article to Geographies of Privilege

Posted February 21, 2013
Tags Africana Studies Faculty Heather Merrill

An article by Associate Professor of Africana Studies and human geographer Heather Merrill, “Who Gets to Be Italian? Black Life Worlds and White Spatial Imaginaries,” is published in the book, Geographies of Privilege, edited by France Winddance Twine and Bradley Gardener, Routledge, 2013.

 

Bringing critical geography literature on place and identity into dialogue with critical race scholarship focused on the African diaspora, Merrill’s essay examines the spatial contours of privilege and belonging in Turin, Italy through the vantage point of first generation Italo-Africans and the transcolonial interweavings of Europe and Africa.
