RESCHEDULED: Virgin Capital: Race, Gender, and Financialization in the US Virgin Islands

Wednesday, November 17, 2021
Time to be announced

This event is organized by UCLA International Institute, UCLA Center for the Study of Women, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.

Thank you so much for registering for the Virgin Capital: Race, Gender, and Financialization in the US Virgin Islands event originally scheduled for this Wednesday, November 17, 2021. In solidarity with the UC-AFT strike on November 17-18, we are rescheduling this event. Professor Navarro has written extensively on race, gender, and neoliberalization in the academy, and we decided together not to cross the picket line and instead to suggest that participants show up to the picket line if they can, or support #WeTeachUC.

Professor Navarro and I will pre-record a Zoom book talk with no audience, and make that recording available on the UCLA Luskin Institute on Inequality and Democracy website here. We are also eager to welcome Professor Navarro to UCLA for Future of Finance events to come.

Thanks all for your understanding and support.

Best,

Hannah Appel
Associate Faculty Director, UCLA Luskin Institute on Inequality and Democracy
Future of Finance Lead

A Virtual Book Talk with Tami Navarro – register here.

     

Virgin Capital: Race, Gender, and Financialization in the US Virgin Islands (SUNY Press, 2021) examines the cultural impact and historical significance of the Economic Development Commission (EDC) in the United States Virgin Islands, a tax holiday scheme. Drawing on fieldwork conducted during the boom years leading up to the 2008–2009 financial crisis, Virgin Capital provides ethnographic insight into the continuing relations of coloniality at work in the quintessentially "modern" industry of financial services and neoliberal "development" regimes, with their grounding in hierarchies of race, gender, class, and geopolitical positioning.
