Black Bodies, Narration, and Imagining Otherwise

Faculty Coordinator: Maxine Craig, Professor of Sociology
Imagine a jogger, a kid with braces, or a timpanist. Who do you see? This research cluster will examine relationships among bodies and social positions in the constitution of the middle class. The unmarked middle class norm is implicitly racialized, able-bodied and heteronormative. The group will foster interdisciplinary dialogue regarding how the physical body is involved in Black women’s efforts to claim places in structures that resist their inclusion.
