"Caution, Empire and Black Feminist Literature"

Wed, February 26, 2020 6:30 PM at MSU Library, Beal Instruction Lab

Grad workshop with Dr. Randi Gill-Sadler, assistant professor of English at Lafayette College. Her research interests include Black feminist theory, African American and Afro-Caribbean women's literature and U.S. Empire. Her forthcoming book manuscript, Diasporic Dissonance: Black Women's Writing, the Caribbean and U.S. Empire , asserts the significance of the Caribbean to the period known as the Black Woman's Literary Renaissance and argues that Black women writers used the Caribbean to explore Black diasporic antagonisms resulting from U.S. imperial exploits.

This event is part of Electric.Marronage, a collaborative digital/material project based on principles of fugitivity, black femme freedome, worlds/otherwide and decoloinzing diaspora studies. Sponsored by the College of Arts & Letters, the Department of Englisha and Black Glow.
