Title

"Circuits of Blood and Stone: On Enslaved Test Subject and the History of Gynecology"

Description

In 2017, The African American and Africana Studies guest Lecture Series was renamed the Rev. Charles Rice Speaker Series. Dr. Nicole Ivy’s lecture, “Circuits of Blood and Stone: On Enslaved Test Subjects and the History of Gynecology” was the first speaker of the newly renamed series and was held in Berman 006 on October 6, 2017. During the event Dr. Ivy addressed the role of enslaved women in nineteenth-century slave clinics in Montgomery, Alabama. While the legacies of these women are often forgotten, history reveres Dr. James Marion Sims as the “father of modern Gynecology” as tested tools and techniques on nonconsenting patients. Dr. Ivy invites us to remember how the enslaved dead impact contemporary spaces of U.S. capital circulation. This event was hosted by the AAAS program in collaboration with Institute for Inclusion and Equity and the Anthropology/ Sociology department.
