Bio


Patricia Schor is a postdoctoral fellow at the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University with the project entitled “Figures of Race in Dutch Modernity: Blacks, Jews and Muslims,” and teaches Humanities and Social Sciences courses at Amsterdam University College. She received her PhD from Utrecht University on the afterlife of colonialism in Portuguese postcolonial literature and theory. In her dissertation she critically analysed the imagination of Portuguese colonialism as a benevolent encounter with “the African” (racialised other). She has published on gendered antiblackness, the afterlife of slavery, coloniality and the articulation of race and space, security and public order, across the Atlantic. She is a recipient of the 2017 Endowed Chair in Portuguese Studies at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and of a 2009 Prince Bernhard Scholarship. Her most recent (co-authored) article in English is “White Order, Corporate Capital and Control of Mobility in the Netherlands,” in the 2018 collection Smash the Pillars: Decoloniality and the Imaginary of Color in the Dutch Kingdom. Her article “Fencing the Black Body Within: The Blackface Debate in the Netherlands” is forthcoming in 2020, in Darkmatter (Special issue on (De-)Facing the Dark face of Europe).
