Monica Huerta, assistant professor of English and American Studies at Princeton, will read from and discuss her new book, The Unintended: Photography, Property, and the Aesthetics of Racial Capitalism (NYU, 2023). In The Unintended, Huerta traces the subtle and paradoxical ways legal thinking through photographic lenses reinscribed a particular aesthetics of whiteness in the very conceptions of property ownership. The book proposes that tracking and 
analyzing the sensed horizons of intention, control, autonomy, will, and volition offers another way into understanding how white supremacy functions.
