ATLANTIC LATINIDADES or Models for Trans-Ocenaic Engaagement: a symposium
This symposium is designed to break down disciplinary barriers in Atlantic studies. As a way of addressing disciplinary gaps, "Atlantic Latinidades" brings together scholars in the comparative fields of African, Latin American and Latinx studies that have decentered established frameworks and shifted epistemological centers. The conference will culminate in a book launch for Sarah M. Quesada's The African Heritage of Latinx and Caribbean Literature (Cambridge University Press 2022).
Invited speakers include Tahia Abdel Nasser, Magalí Armillas-Tiseyra, Sophie Esch, Anne Garland Mahler, David Kazanjian, Lanie Millar, Ato Quayson, Richard T. Rodríguez, María Josefina Saldaña-Portillo, Fatoumata Seck, Joseph Slaughter, and Ariana Vigil.
Event co-sponsors: Duke Romance Studies, John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute, Duke Africa Initiative, Duke Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies, Duke Office of Global Affairs, Duke English, NOVEL, UNC Latina/o Studies Program.
