Please join Concerning Violence: A Collaborative Research Group for a discussion with Dr. Jean Beaman, author of Citizen Outsider: Children of North African Immigrants in France (2017).
Towards a Reading of Black Lives Matter in France:
Diasporic Connections and Global Social Movements
In this talk from her book in progress, Dr. Beaman will discuss her ongoing ethnographic research on anti-racist mobilization and activism against police violence and put that in conversation with anti-racist mobilization and the Black Lives Matter movement both in the United States and worldwide. She will discuss what it means to consider Black Lives Matter in a society that disavows race and racism and how anti-racist activists in France, many of whom are Black and Maghrebin origin, assert a place for themselves in a society that continually marginalizes them.
Jean Beaman is an associate professor of sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara and 2022-23 fellow at the Center for the Advanced Study of Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. She has previously held visiting fellowships at Duke University, the European University Institute (Florence, Italy), and University of Notre Dame. She has conducted research on international migration, race, and racism in France (and the rest of Western Europe) and the United States. She is the author of Citizen Outsider: Children of North African Immigrants in France (University of California Press, 2017). She is also an associate editor of the journal, Identities: Global Studies in Culture and Power and a corresponding editor for the journal Metropolitics/Metropolitiques. She was the Co-PI for the Mellon Foundation Sawyer Seminar grant, “Race, Precarity, and Privilege: Migration in a Global Context” for 2020-22.
