Afro-Latin American Women’s Writings in Latin America

March 29, 2011 :: Lee Hall, 411 :: 6 p.m.

The legacy of Black women’s writings in Latin American remains at best one of the least known bodies of literature in the Americas. This presentation takes up that issue as it seeks to confront some of the situations that surround that body of work, at times paying special attention to the writers themselves. Presented by Dr. Dawn Duke, Assistant Professor of Spanish and Portuguese in the Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures at The University of Tennessee . Dr. Duke specializes in Afro-Latin American literature and cultural studies.
