The Postcolonial, Race, and Diaspora Studies Colloquium
invites you to join us for our first reading group of the semester!
Tuesday, October 11 from 6:00-7:30pm in the English Department Event Space (244 Greene St, room 106).
We will be reading selections from Lorgia García-Peña's new book, Translating Blackness: Latinx Colonialities in Global Perspective. We will be discussing the Introduction ("Race, Colonialism, and Migration in the Global Latinx Diaspora") and Chapter 3 ("Against Death: Black Latina Rebellion in Diasporic Community").
The Postcolonial, Race, and Diaspora Studies Colloquium seeks to build community among students and faculty with shared interests across different fields. The reading group sessions are a great chance to meet people and explore new ideas, and you should feel free to come even if you haven't had a chance to finish the readings.
You might also save the date for our second reading group on Tuesday, November 8th (6pm) to discuss adrienne maree brown's Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds. We hope to see you there!
