Join us on Thursday April 15 @1PM for a conversation with Dr. Yomaira Figueroa Vasquez, a scholar of U.S. Latinx Caribbean, Afro-Latinx, and Afro-Hispanic literature and culture, and author of Decolonizing Diasporas: Radical Mappings of Afro-Atlantic Literature. She will be in conversation with Baruch students who have read her work, or have an interest in the intersections between Latinx and Black Studies. So many of us read her interdisciplinary essay, “Your Lips: Mapping Afro-Boricua feminist Becomings” and/or visited “Afro-Boricua Archives: Paperless People and Photo/Poetics as Resistance,” and you are welcome to explore them in advance.
You can register here for the Zoom event on Thursday, April 15 @1PM.
This student-centered Globus Lecture Event is organized in collaboration between the Black and Latino Studies and the English Department.
