In conversation with Lisa Lowe

Luke de Noronha welcomes Lisa Lowe, Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity, Race and Migration, to talk about her book, The Intimacies of Four Continents, where she examines links between transatlantic slavery, Asian indenture, imperial trades and colonialism. Concerning liberalism, Lisa discusses how ideas of reason, civilisation and freedom are continually dividing the human according to a coloniality of power or a colonial division of humanities, affirming liberty for European man but subordinating the colonised and disposed.
