Virtual Event

In Decolonizing Diasporas, professor Figueroa-Vásquez argues that the works of diasporic writers and artists from Equatorial Guinea, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Cuba offer new worldviews that unsettle and dismantle the logics of colonial modernity. This study centers the cultural productions of peoples of African descent as Afro-diasporic imaginaries that subvert coloniality and offer new ways to approach questions of home, location, belonging, and justice. 

Sponsored by Center for Latinx and Latin American Studies, the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures,  the Department of Comparative Literature, and the Department of American Studies & Ethnicity.
