Hiding in Plain Sight: Black Women, Intimacy, and the Making of Race in Argentina

This presentation is a gendered analysis of  black invisibility  in Argentina. It focuses on Black and African descended women who actively partook in the construction of racial identities during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Focused on the household and intimate relationships that ensued, Edwards argues that Black and African descended concubines, wives, mothers, and daughters are central to understanding the making of race in Argentina.
