Book Discussion and Signing - "Salvage Work" by Angela Naimou

  • 130 S. Main Street Greenville, SC 29601 USA

Join us at M. Judson Booksellers as we host Clemson Professor Angela Naimou's most recent publication, "Salvage Work".

Salvage Work examines contemporary literary responses to the law’s construction of personhood in the Americas. Tracking the extraordinary afterlives of the legal slave personality from the nineteenth century into the twenty-first, Angela Naimou shows the legal slave to be a fractured but generative figure for contemporary legal personhood across categories of race, citizenship, gender, and labor. What emerges is a compelling and original study of how law invents categories of identification and how literature contends with the person as a legal fiction.
