Politics of Empowerment Working Group
April 27, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Politics of Empowerment meets every three weeks in order to discuss works that broadly fall under the fields of Women of Color Feminisms and Queer of Color Theory. We invite at least one guest speaker every semester to deliver a lecture at the university or to participate in a seminar with the group. The Politics of Empowerment also aims to foster conversations not only with other NYU groups but also with the larger NYC community–in the past we have attended events organized by The Postcolonial, Race, and Diaspora Studies Colloquium at NYU and by The Brooklyn Museum, for example. Lastly, the group seeks to provide a supportive environment in which students interested in sharing their work and receiving feedback may do so during workshops.
We will be hosting Pacharee Sudhinaraset our next meeting on April 27th! We hope you can join us at the 8th floor reading room from 5-6:30pm. Please email Mercedes Trigos (email@example.com) for this week’s readings and/or to join our mailing list.
