Erika Denise Edwards, Ph.D., ‘Hiding in Plain Sight: Black Women and the Making of a White Nation’
Second annual Greer Lecture in Latin American History
6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6.
Erika Denise Edwards, Ph.D., ‘Hiding in Plain Sight: Black Women and the Making of a White Nation’

This presentation is a gendered analysis of black invisibility in Argentina. It focuses on Black and African-descended women who actively participated in the construction of racial identities during the 18th and 19th century in Córdoba in central Argentina. Focused on household and intimate relationships, Edwards argues that Black and African-descended concubines, wives, mothers and daughters are central to understanding the making of a white Argentine nation.

Erika Denise Edwards, Ph.D., is an associate professor of Latin American history at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Edwards’ research advocates for a re-learning of Argentina's Black past and the origins of anti-Blackness.

“Hiding in Plain Sight” is made possible through the support of Harold and Laura Greer, who provided an endowment to establish the Greer Distinguished Professorship in Latin American History, which also funds an annual lecture on Latin American history.
