Event Description

“Towards a History of the Radicalized State” by Dr. Clarence E. Walker, professor of history at the University of California at Davis.

Walker will argue for the need to integrate the histories of African Americans, Latinos and Asian Americans with the larger U.S. racial context.

Walker’s research focuses on black American history from 1450 to the present; he also focuses on 19th century social and political history of the United States, including the history of sexuality, film and popular culture. He has authored numerous publications, most recently Mongrel Nation: The America Begotten by Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings (2009) and The Preacher and the Politician: Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama, and Race in America (2009).

The lecture is cosponsored by the Hamilton College History department, Asian studies department and Dean of Faculty’s Office.
