Sex and Swords in Petticoats: Female Piracy in the Early Modern New World
 

Sharonah Fredrick

Clinical Assistant Professor,
Romance Languages & Literatures

Dr. Sharonah Fredrick's talk will explore the centrality of women in general, and female pirate commanders in particular, in the violent world of the Caribbean and the Pacific during the centuries of conquest and colony; it will look at the connections between the empowered female pirate and the disempowered female witch in New World chronicles, and focus on the reasons that women were "erased" from the pirate narrative in Spanish and English in recent times.

It will also ponder the supposedly piratical origins of fishnet stockings.

The Politics of Knowledge Production—An Intellectual Sojourn into Understanding; Epistemology and Practice of African Gender History

Achebe.

Feb 13, 2020
1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
509 O’Brian Hall
UB North Campus

Nwando Achebe details her personal journey into becoming an Africanist and gender historian. Along the way, she considers questions relating to the ownership and production of Africanist knowledge; while highlighting several influential interpretive voices that have shaped received canon in ways that are at best, problematic; and at worst, Eurocentric. These voices have worked to interrupt and/or disrupt true understanding and knowing about African women and gender. She ends by offering up her own African- and gender-centered intervention into existing discourse and production of history. Reception will follow lecture.
Cosponsored by the UB Department of History, Gender Institute, School of Law and the Office of the Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence.

Women and the Protestant Cult of the Dead in Antebellum America  
 

Erik Seeman

Professor and Chair
History

In this talk, Seeman discusses his new book, Speaking with the Dead in Early America, which traces the history of Protestant communication with the dead from the English Reformation to the rise of Spiritualism. Before they dominated Spiritualism, women were central to what Seeman calls the antebellum cult of the dead. Women did the physical labor of caring for the dying and dead, and the emotional labor of grief work. They authored and read the popular sentimental literature that transmitted the cult. And in their diaries they prayed to the dead and expressed the belief that the dead returned as guardian angels. Women thus generated theological change, contrary to how previous scholars privilege male theologians and revivalists.
