Global Visions of Blackness: Intersectional Discourse on Language & Race in Film & Literature
Wednesday, March 25, 2020
4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

This symposium seeks to engage participants in a conversation on how blackness is embodied, explained, and evoked through language in the literature and film produced in diverse cultural spaces. Through discussions of Afro-Latinx identity in the U.S., the cultural production and literature of Equatorial Guinea, the translation of stylized racial speech in African American literature, and the linguistic construction of blackness in Spanish film dubbing, the symposium presentations will engage in an intersectional conversation on language and race using a global lens. Through these discussions, faculty and student researchers will engage diverse stories, diverse storytellers, and the language they use to produce visions of blackness around the world.

Refreshments will be served.
