Jennifer Waters is in her third year of TSM History and Philosophy and her twentieth year of being a bi-racial American. She is a Laidlaw Scholar researching ‘Future Dangerousness’ in the United States, and its legal facilitation of racist bias. She and Claire Stalhuth were the co-creators and managers of the Campaign Calling on TCD to establish Ireland’s second only Black Studies Module. Her experience with iterations of racism in Ireland and America has helped her view its occurrences with as much nuance as she can grace to something so fundamentally inconsistent.
