Lindsey Stewart, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at The University of Memphis, will give the lecture, “Black Southern Feminism in Philosophy,” as a part of the Sights of Power: Race and Visual Culture Lecture Series in conjunction with special exhibition For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights

The talk discusses the importance of black Southern life (both in representation and intellectual contributions) to philosophy, popular culture, and politics. We will have a special focus on music centering Southern black women, such as Beyoncé and Erykah Badu.

Stewart joined the University of Memphis’ philosophy department in 2017. Her research interests are black feminism, African American philosophy, and social and political philosophy. Her research focuses on developing black feminist conceptions of political agency, with special attention to the intersection of sexuality, region, religion, and class.
