Dr. Rahsaan Mahadeo

Georgetown University

To ask, “What time is it?” is to orient one to time and space. Rather than using an adjective (i.e. “what”), it may be more productive to use a determiner (e.g. “whose”). “Whose time is it?” exposes the possibility that some may own time, while others can only owe it. In his talk, Dr. Rahsaan Mahadeo illustrates how racialized youth, particularly black youth in urbanized space reckon with time. He will show how time is racialized, how race is temporalized and how racism takes time.
