Engineered Conflict: School Closings, Public Housing, Law Enforcement and The Future of Black Life

Institute for the Humanities Fellow Lecture

David Stovall, PhD

African-American Studies and Criminology, Law & Justice Professor
University of Illinois at Chicago

Thursday, November 14, 2019
4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

UIC Stevenson Hall – Lower Level
701 S Morgan St
Chicago, IL 60607

The presentation “Engineered Conflict: School Closings, Public Housing, Law Enforcement and the Future of Black Life” interrogates white supremacy/racism in the form of state-sanctioned structural violence in Chicago.

Through the creation of obstruction and failure at the government/administrative level, the city’s recent and historical maneuvers in education, housing and law enforcement operate as material and ideological sites for continued containment and marginalization of large groupings of African-American (Black) residents on the South and West sides of the city. By entering a conversation on structural violence, the presentation seeks to reframe the current moment in Chicago neighborhoods that are experiencing and resisting fracture, dispossession, marginalization and isolation.
