Extra-Credit Events for this Week The Center for Black Studies Research and the Department of Black Studies present: Winnifred Brown-Glaude Assistant Professor of Africana Studies at SUNY-Stony Brook Friday April 11 th 12:00 Center for Black Studies Research 4603 South Hall Afro-Jamaican Market Women in the Public Sphere: Challenging Race/ Class/Gender Inequality in the Age of Globalization Public representations of Afro-Jamaican female street vendors -- commonly known as higglers -- present these women as low-status and even as deviants. Based on ethnographic research in Jamaica, I argue that these representations stem from an ideology of social pollution attached to higglers -- an ideology based in deep-rooted race/color, class, and gender divisions that have long been a part of Jamaica's social and political fabric. The treatment of higglers cannot be explained by their informal status as market women. Instead, it must be seen as an attempt by local elites to control a social and spatial order shaped by race/color, class and gender divisions in a context of acute economic challenges and social instability.
