No Place Like Home: Whiteness, Displacement, and the Price of National Belonging
Guest Speaker: Dr. Jasmine Syedullah, Sociology, Vassar College

Thursday 12, 1:00-2:00pm

Jasmine Syedullah is a practicing abolitionist and academic, as well as co-author of Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love, and Liberation (North Atlantic Books, 2016).
She is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology at Vassar College. Her current research is a political theory of abolition from below which centers the nineteenth century writings of antislavery abolitionist Harriet Jacobs, namely the implications of her initial escape from slavery documented in her 1861 slave narrative to the tiny garret space she refers to as her “loophole of retreat.”

Syedullah holds a PhD in Politics with a designated emphasis in Feminist Studies and History of Consciousness from University of California Santa Cruz and a B.A. from Brown University in Religious Studies with a focus in Buddhist Philosophy.
