After a week away, we're back with another episode and another exciting and thought-provoking seminar paper! Katherine Paugh, an Associate Professor in North American Women’s History at Corpus Christi College at the University of Oxford, talks to Lewis Defrates about her paper '‘Race and Venereal Disease in the Atlantic World'. The paper explores racialized understandings of venereal diseases (particularly 'Yaws' and 'The Great Pox') in the long eighteenth century in Europe and the Caribbean. Professor Paugh explains the shift in approach towards inoculation in the Caribbean both before and after the abolition of slavery, the drive on the part of white plantation managers to keep Afro-Caribbean in the labour force, and particularly the connection between these themes and her previous book, "The Politics of Reproduction: Race, Medicine and Fertility in the Age of Abolition”. If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, get in touch via @camericanist on Twitter or ltd27@cam.ac.uk. Spread the word, and thanks for listening! See you next week!
