One of the aims of the “Rethinking Power & Resistance” Conference was to build a foundation for ongoing relationships among university and community members who are engaged in issues of gender and human rights. The conference, held last October, is a project of the Embrey Women’s Human Rights Initiative (EWHRI) at CWGS.
At the April 30th event, a panel of “Rethinking Power & Resistance” conference participants will continue a conference discussion thread on gender justice. Panelists Dr. Matt Richardson, Associate Professor of English and African and African Diaspora Studies and CWGS Affiliate; Dr. Christen Smith, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and African and African Diaspora Studies; and Rose Pulliam, MSW, Co-Director of allgo, a statewide queer people of color organization, will use Dr. Smith’s research on the politics of performance, race, violence and the body in Brazil and the Americas, as a starting point for conversation about new opportunities for university-community collaboration.
