In 2007 the Initiative on Race, Gender, and Globalization's events will focus on issues concerning sexuality, race, and gender; diasporicity and diasporic intellectuals; the extant legacies of slavery; the geo-politics of liberal reason; memory, mourning, and commerce; among other important topics. Presenters will include Rinaldo Walcott, Saidiya Hartman, among other thought provoking theorists.
To kick off the year, on JANUARY 31, 2007, Linsly-Chittenden Hall (63 High St, New Haven), Room 211, at 430pm, we will host a public lecture delivered by Professor Rinaldo Walcott entitled BLACK SEX. Professor Walcott is Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Equity Studies in Education,where he also holds the Canada Research Chair in Social Justice and Cultural Studies, at the University of Toronto. He is the author of Black Like Who? Writing Black Canada (Insomniac Press, 1997) and the editor of Rude: Contemporary Black Canadian Cultural Criticism (Insomniac Press, 2000). He was a member of the former Borderlines editorial collective and a former editorial board member of Fuse Magazine.
