April 23 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A few decades ago almost no Latin American countries included questions about race or ethnicity on national censuses. Today, the collection of such data is the dominant practice in the region. Most analysts of this shift have focused on the politics of recognition that pressured states to make afro-descendent and indigenous populations officially visible in statistics and social policy.

Racial Reckonings and the Future of the Humanities

April 28 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The term “reckoning” denotes acts of calculation, estimation and debts paid. It can carry a sense of a future settlements. It also refers to “ideas, opinions and judgments” as in the phrase, “I reckon.” To what extent, and how, might we imagine a racial reckoning via new work in arts and humanities? The recently formed Centering Race Consortium brings together researchers at four institutions: Brown, Stanford, the University of Chicago and Yale to “center” racial justice in the pursuit of…

April 29 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Drawing from his experiences living on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border in the late ’70s, and also in Europe in the late ’90s, Enrique Chagoya juxtaposes secular, popular and religious symbols in order to address the ongoing cultural clash between the United States, Latin America and the world as well. He uses familiar pop icons to create deceptively friendly points of entry for the discussion of complex issues. Through these seemingly harmless characters, Chagoya examines the recurring subject of…

A History I am Not Writing: Sexuality, Exemplarity, South Asia

May 7 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The incitement of the talk’s title, “A History I Am Not Writing,” summons a paradoxical labor for histories of sexuality in South Asia: to read the archival exemplar precisely for what it cannot hold. There is no stabilizing recuperation of historical detail on offer here, but more an exhortation to think the exemplar of sexuality as an absorbing and abundant discursive presence, reassembled through our every act of reading. Bypassing the seductive heroics of recuperative historiography, this talk proffers a…
