The 2021 GPC Jan Monk Distinguished Lecture

The Gender, Place and Culture (GPC) Jan Monk Distinguished Lecture began in 2006. It is given in collaboration with the University of Arizona’s Geography Department. The lecture honors Jan Monk’s many contributions to feminist geography and her long-time association with the journal.

At the virtual AAG conference 2021, Dr. Camilla Hawthorne presented her paper “Black Mediterranean Geographies” as this year’s GPC Jan Monk Distinguished Lecture.

Dr. Camilla Hawthorne currently serves as Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at UC Santa Cruz. She is a critical human geographer and an interdisciplinary social scientist. She has a broad interest in the racial politics of migration and citizenship, inequality, social movements, and Black geographies. Her work can be placed at the intersection of critical public policy studies, diaspora theory, Black European studies, and postcolonial/feminist science and technology studies. Her engagement in Black geographies is evident in her currently serving as Chair of the Black Geographies Specialty Group of the American Association of Geographers.

In her talk Dr. Hawthorne examined how Blackness is constructed, lived, and transformed in the Mediterranean. This is a region that has been alternatively understood as a “cultural crossroads” at the heart of European civilization, a source of dangerous racial contamination, and as the deadliest border crossing in the world. In the wake of the 2015 Mediterranean refugee crisis, scholars increasingly turned to the “Black Mediterranean” as an analytical framework for understanding the historical and geographical specificities of Blackness in the Mediterranean region. Dr. Hawthorne drew on insights from Black, feminist, and postcolonial geographies and argued that the Mediterranean is actually a relational space that offers profound insights about the organization of the modern world. The new solidaristic political formations that Dr. Hawthorn discussed in her talk, can prompt us to rethink the categories of race, gender, citizenship, and Blackness on a global scale.

The lecture was recorded and is available for 30 days for AAG attendees. The paper will be published in GPC later this year.
