Book Manuscript Workshop Series: Elizabeth Williams, "Primitive Normativity: Sexuality, Race, and Temporality in Colonial Kenya.”

In Spring 2021, the Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences awarded its first round of grants to allow UK faculty members to invite an expert in their field to review their book manuscripts before submitting the manuscript to the publisher.  We congratulate all four winners.  See https://chss.as.uky.edu/grant-recipients
 
We are very pleased to announce that our first Book Manuscript Workshop will take place on Tuesday, September 28th at 3:30 PM via Zoom. 
 
Elizabeth Williams  (GWS) will be in conversation with Luise White about her book "Primitive Normativity: Sexuality, Race, and Temporality in Colonial Kenya.”
 
Patricia Ehrkamp (Geography) will serve as moderator. 
 
Elizabeth Williams is a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Gender and Women’s Studies. Her book is “Primitive Normativity: Sexuality, Race, and Temporality in Colonial Kenya.” While traditional scholarship has argued colonizers universally represented indigenous peoples as sexually deviant, Williams argues an entirely different narrative developed in colonial Kenya, a narrative that emphasized the normativity of Kenyan African sexuality. The book discusses how colonists were able to argue that Africans must be “protected” from the forces of urbanization, Western-style education, and political participation because this would expose them to forms of “civilized” sexual deviance. Professor Emerita Luise White of the University of Florida, a specialist on Kenya, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe will be serving as manuscript reviewer.
