This panel draws from the significant expertise of its panelists to consider the unique urban geographies of New Orleans -- past and present -- from critical race and feminist perspectives. The organizing question revolves around the mutual conditioning of the constructions of race and place in the context of New Orleans, with examination of issues such as the production of Black spaces, negotiating the spaces of Jim Crow, dimensions and meanings of Blackness in the segregation of a complex city, performance and contested identities, tourism and cultural politics, marginalization and vulnerabilities, and material cultures of the New Orleans landscape.
