October 31, 5.30 pm (South Lounge, LC): Lecture by Dr. Pap Ndiaye "The Minority Paradox, Blackness in France"
A pioneer of French Black Studies, Pap Ndiaye will examine why French intellectuals have long been reluctant to the notion of "Blackness" and how it might in fact be an intellectually and politically legitimate way to address the specific circumstances faced by racial minorities in contemporary France. In this lecture, he will also address the emergence of a new blackness in more recent years in France. This is free public event co-sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, the Program in Comparative Literature and the Center on Race, Law and Justice in collaboration with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. For further information, please contact Dr. Audrey Evrard (firstname.lastname@example.org)Read More
