Video: Sarah Haley and Sophie Lewis on Feminism, Abolition, and the State

Who lives, who dies? Who is compelled to produce life? Who is abandoned by the state, and who is killed? Who polices these boundaries, and how are they constructed and contested?

For the 2023 Lauren Berlant 3CT Graduate Student Conference, “Power over Life and Death: Feminism, Abolition, and the State,” Sarah Haley (Associate Professor of History, Columbia University) and Sophie Lewis (Faculty, Brooklyn Institute for Social Research) came together for a conversation on feminist and abolitionist critique and struggle. Conference co-organizer Kit Ginzky moderated.
