'Diversity and Affect': Inaugural Lecture of New Black Studies Lecture Series
Nov 21, 2016, 11:30am-2:30pm
The Department of Humanities, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, is pleased to host the inaugural lecture of the new Black Studies Lecture Series by Wayde Compton. The lecture will examine the differences between intellectual anti-racism and embodied anti-racism. It will think specifically about how "affect theory" may help to describe the ongoing violent repression of black people by agents of authority in the 21st century, and how it is possible to imagine an artistic response to embodied racism through diversified representation.
Wayde Compton is an award-winning poet, essayist and fiction writer. In 2002, he co-founded the Hogan’s Alley Memorial Project, an organization devoted to preserving the public memory of Vancouver’s black community.
