During this dialogue, Gerbrands laureates Jackson and Thomas will think together about these keywords, conceptual frames that have animated aspects of their individual research projects in the United States and Jamaica. Drawing examples from their writing, and from their multi-modal collaborations, they will interrogate how we know a conspiracy when we hear it, how we understand race when we see it, and how we identify love when we feel it. By privileging these sensory registers as technologies of knowing, they will also position the nexus created by these three terms as a mode of decolonial anthropology.
