2021 Writer's Discussion Series: Yomaira C. Figueroa-Vasquez
Speaker: Yomaira C. Figueroa-Vasquez
The Sonja Haynes Stone Center will be hosting a book talk featuring Yomaira C. Figueroa-Vasquez on March 23 at 3:30pm. She will be discussing her new book Decolonizing Diasporas: Radical Mappings of Afro-Atlantic Literature, which focuses on diasporic and exilic Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, and Equatoguinean texts in contact. Framed with critical attention to decolonial thought, women of color feminisms, and feminist philosophy, the book complicates and enriches ongoing conversations and debates in Black/Latinx/Hispanophone studies through a sustained mediation on poetics and cultural productions.
This program is free and will be virtual via Zoom. Participants can register here. All are welcome to attend!
