Jeanique Tucker - Blog 3: Tivoli

Post type: 
Blog post

My current research is on violence and the ways that it can often dehumanize those who are already vulnerable.  I am preoccupied with exploring how certain groups are targeted and the legacies such violations leave on the collective consciousness of a community.  I am interested in the case of Jamaica specifically, because I was born and raised there but I am also interested in comparing Jamaica against other countries known for similar levels of state violence.  Growing up in Jamaica I saw police violence first hand and I saw it often.

Jeanique Tucker - Blog 2: Fatigue

Post type: 
Blog post

I am in a constant state of agitation. I am fatigued.  I started the year enthused about its possibilities but reality has a way of undermining expectations at every turn.  I am not without hope or agency or drive, but helplessness is a feeling that finds its way inside those moments, muting my perception of the outcomes.  But, I continue to push forward, to try to make change where I can, all the while recognizing my limitations.  I try to remind myself that limitations aren't automatic failures, but tests that require you prove your mettle.
