Description

In connection with the UW Tacoma School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences Community Book Project’s selection, the award-winning novel, WASHINGTON BLACK, and Black History Month, UW Tacoma Senior Lecturer in History, Libi Sundermann, PhD, explores how the enslaved protagonist of Esi Edugyan’s story reflects the real-life contributions enslaved peoples made to knowledge and advances claimed by European scientists in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences Community Book Project is sponsored by an ITaSC grant.
