Yomaira Figueroa-Vasquez | Decolonizing Diasporas: Radical Mappings of Afro-Atlantic Literature

For our first event of the year, we will be reading and discussing selections of Yomaira Figueroa-Vasquez's work Decolonizing Diasporas: Radical Mappings of Afro-Atlantic Literature, diving into her use of feminist theories and frameworks to examine the subversion of coloniality and canonization by Afro-Atlantic Hispanophone writers and artists in their works, and to map out the deeply relational ties which bind them to one another. 

Lunch and a free copy of the book will be provided.
