Speaker Series - Spring 2013


February 27, 2013 - 3:00pm, SUB 3rd Floor, Acoma A&B - Dr. Dylan Rodríguez, Professor and Chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies at UC Riverside.

"Inhabiting the Impasse: Racial Genocide and the Logic of Evisceration" - How do the historical logics of racial genocide permeate our most familiar systems of state violence, cultural production, institutionalized knowledge, liberation struggle, and social identity? How do ordinary people (including scholars) inhabit racial genocidemake sense of it, narrate it, suffer it, and revolt against it? In this talk, Dylan Rodríguez examines how the genocidal and proto-genocidal logics of social liquidation, cultural extermination, physiological evisceration, and racist terror become normalized features of everyday life in different historical periods, up to and including the "post-civil rights" and "post-racial" moments.

This event is co-sponsored by the Dept. of American Studies, the Women Studies Program, and the ASGSA. For more information, please contact: Antonio Tiongson, ationgson@unm.edu
