Triple G Colloquium – The White Unseen: Anti-Blackness in the Discipline of Geography

Join the MSU Geography Graduate Group (Triple G) for the second session of the Fall 2020 Triple G Colloquium Series. Dr. Aretina Rochelle Hamilton, Associate Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the Interlochen Center for the Arts will present “The White Unseen: Anti-Blackness in the Discipline of Geography.”

Description:

Despite our understanding of colonial thought and power, geographers–like many scholars–are less willing to look within. We speak in platitudes and identify oppression as placeless when the place is here and now. Even as some geographers unpack the systemic inequality and violence initiated by the state, how is violence perpetuated within our departments, institutions, and professional conferences? How does this refusal to look inward perpetuate anti-blackness and racism with our field? In the wake of the acquittal of the police officers in the murder of Breonna Taylor, what have we learned, and what are we doing? In the works of Dr. Clyde Wood (2002: 62), “the whipshaw of social, cultural, and physical destruction seems invisible to all but the amputees.”

In this talk, Dr. Hamilton will use the concept of the “white unseen” (Hamilton, forthcoming)–an intentional though pattern and epistemological process where the everyday action, terrors, ruptures, and tensions faced by black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) are rendered invisible–to illuminate how whiteness within our discipline is normalized.

Triple G Colloquium – Erasing the Thin Blue Line: An Indigenous Proposal

Featuring: Matthew L.M. Fletcher
Foundation Professor, MSU College of Law
Director of the Indigenous Law & Policy Center

This talk on policing and Anishinaabe political theory draws on work inspired by the statements of support for the Black Lives Matter movement from state supreme courts like those in Washington and elsewhere. In part, the article is addressed to the state judges who have spoken out on BLM and the judges on the Michigan forum who speak out in favor of Indian children. The novel claim of the article is that the Supreme Court long has used what Fletcher terms “social contract talk” to demean, dehumanize, and marginalize POC and lower-income persons most likely to be subjected to police interventions. This “social contract talk” is not the law but enables judges to grant police (and prosecutors, though not addressed directly) immense discretion to target POC and lower-income persons and to immunize them from legal consequences. Weaponized “social contract talk” recalls the origin of the social contract in America, which enabled and encouraged slavery and dispossession of Indigenous peoples. Fletcher offers an alternative to social contract talk rooted in Anishinaabe political philosophy, which encourages inclusion, healing, and accountability. Many tribes have relatively little policing of their territories and a completely different mentality about criminal justice.
