Title of presentation:
“That is 800 children”: Nazi Germany, the United States, and Dismantling Global Anti-Blackness and Racism
Description of presentation:
Dr. Emanuela Kucik will give an overview of the relationship between Nazi Germany, the United States, and anti-Blackness. Through this focus on the similar, deadly ways that anti-Blackness functions in various spaces, she aims to contribute to conversations that provide an expanded narrative of the Holocaust and allow us to better understand the global intersections of oppressive systems. In discussing how these connected structures sustain each other, she emphasizes that dismantling one piece of systemic oppression can begin to unravel the others.
Dr. Kucik’s bio:
Dr. Emanuela Kucik is an Assistant Professor of English and Africana Studies and the Co-Director of the Africana Studies Program at Muhlenberg College, where she was recently awarded the 2021 Ruth and Joel Spira Prize for Distinguished Teaching. Her interdisciplinary research and courses explore the intersections of literature, genocide, race, and human rights violations, and her forthcoming book focuses on how Black populations have used the concept of genocide to write about anti-Black violence.
Dr. Kucik received her PH.D. and M.A. in English from Princeton University with certifications in American Literature, with a concentration in Comparative Race and Ethnicity Studies; Holocaust Literature; and Genocide Literature. At Princeton, she also earned a Doctoral Graduate Certificate in African American Studies.
