Part of the 2019–2020 Fellows' Presentation Series

Lecture by Anthony Romero RI '20

Free and open to the public.


As a Radcliffe fellow, Anthony Romero is working on a multimedia research and visual art project that includes a collection of related but discrete works which attempt to articulate how indigenous populations, under European colonial rule in Australia, South Asia, and the United States, were controlled through the criminalization and legislating of native sound and music practices. Taken together, these histories reveal how carceral and criminalizing strategies sowed the seeds for the ongoing over-policing of black and brown communities.
