In this first episode of this relaunched podcast, A Partial Perspective, William talks with Dr Antoinette Jackson, the incoming Chair of the Applied Anthropology Department at the University of South Florida. He discusses with her the transition to this new position during COVID-19 as well as how students, faculty, and all of us can cope during the quarantine. He also discusses her latest book, Heritage, Tourism, and Race: The Other Side of Leisure (2020), discussing how Black people have historically experienced tourism and what placing Black people’s stories at the center of anthropological investigations does to enhance and put forth a Critical Race Theoretical Perspective. Lastly, William also discusses her 2012 book Speaking for the Enslaved: Heritage Interpretation at Antebellum Plantation Sites, and the power of language when referencing the enslaved.
