Public keynote lecture with Dr Cedric Essi, University of Osnabrück:
The rise of Barack Obama to the White House was accompanied by national debates about the possibility of an imminent “post-racial” era in the United States. But in the wake of the Trump presidency, “structural racism” has become the new key term in mainstream diagnoses of the state of the Union. My talk traces how this shift has been shaped by changing notions of American kinship and highlights how historical links between kinship and property continue to determine racism in the Biden era.
