Grant details:

Representations of Afrolatinidad Conference (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Representations of Afrolatinidad Conference
Author: Michele Reid-Vazquez, Director, Afrolatinidad Studies Initiative
Abstract: The intersections of race, ethnicity, and representation have shaped historical and contemporary articulations of Afrolatinidad. The Representations of Afrolatinidad conference aims to engage multiple depictions of Afro-Latin American and Afro-Latinx communities – whether self-fashioned or imposed. The varied portrayals in the past and present reflect the ongoing global realities, struggles, vibrancy, and resiliency of Afro-Latin diasporas throughout the Americas and elsewhere. The symposium featured keynote speakers Dr. Kia Caldwell (Washington University in St. Louis) and Professor Tanya K. Hernández (Fordham University). Their work on issues of race, gender, and health equity in Afro-Latin America and anti-Black bias among US Latinx, respectively, will spark broader exchanges around Afrolatinidad and representation among presenters and attendees.
Date Range: April 13-15, 2023
