The Modern & Contemporary Colloquium and the Post-Colonial, Race & Diaspora Studies Colloquium are excited to host Joshua Bennett (Harvard Society of Fellows) for a talk exploring continuities in 19th and 21st century black poetics. Dr Bennett's "Revising the Wasteland: black anti-pastoral & the end of the world" pays special attention to the work of James Monroe Whitfield and Philip B. Williams, and will be followed by responses from scholars Kesi Augustine, Kate McIntyre, Sonya Posmentier, and Simone White. It is the first of two events co-hosted by MACC and PCRDC this autumn.
