Crossings & Rasanblaj: Performing Anthropological Interventions

Thu, Oct 26 2017 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Location: 
Hooker Auditorium

Please join us for a hybrid performance/presentation by Gina Athena Ulysse (Wesleyan anthropologist) on Thursday, October 26 at 7:30 pm in Hooker Auditorium (located on the south side of Clapp Laboratory), Mount Holyoke. The title is CROSSINGS & RASANBLAJ: PERFORMING ANTHROPOLOGICAL INTERVENTIONS.

Ulysse is a feminist artist-anthropologist-activist and self-described Post-Zora Interventionist born in Pétion-Ville, Haïti. A dynamic performer and public speaker, she is described by artist Evan Bissell as “a powerhouse and a whirling storm.” Historian Robin D.G. Kelley calls her “a one-woman aftershock.”

This talk is the kickoff keynote for the 2017-18 COLLECTIVE VISIONS lecture series sponsored by Mount Holyoke’s Department of Sociology and Anthropology. A poster is attached.

A book-signing will follow the talk. For further information please contact Michelle Pietras mpietras@mtholyoke.edu.
