About the event
Where is Latin America today? And where is it heading? North, South, East or West? Join a panel of leading-edge thinkers including philosopher Linda Martín Alcoff (Hunter College and The Graduate Center, CUNY), historian Herman Bennett (The Graduate Center, CUNY), cultural critic Mary Louise Pratt (Spanish and Portuguese Languages & Literatures, NYU), Nelson Maldonado-Torres (Comparative Literature, Rutgers) and Kyoo Lee, (Philosophy, John Jay College, CUNY) as they engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue on the specificity, centrality, and diversity of Latin America in the global imaginary. This event is the second in this year’s series on critical and creative “Un/learning,” a public program connected to “ReOrientale: Rethinking Orientalism and other Global Oddities.” For further information on this and other Seminars in the Humanities, see http://centerforthehumanities.org/seminars.
