Rachel Williams - Policy in Palimpsestic Time: Researching Black Education in the South
In this talk, Rachel engages with Black studies scholars who deconstruct historical time as linear in order to discuss continuity and change between Black education, space, and capital in the U.S. South. She will discuss the significance of studying Black education in the South and illuminate how the analytic of palimpsestic time shapes her broader research agenda.

Rachel Elizabeth Williams is a PhD candidate in the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research agenda explores the linkages between the political economy, segregation, education policy, and Black intra-racial politics. In her dissertation, she utilizes qualitative and spatial methods to examine charter growth in relationship to new modes of segregation, such as predatory housing policies and county secession, while drawing linkages to Black politics in a majority Black city in the U.S. South.
