CEAH announces Seed Grant Recipients 2011-2012

Elisa Rizo (Assistant Professor, Spanish) and Madeleine Henry (Professor Classical Studies) will examine the use of Greco-Roman traditions in literary and other cultural productions of Spanish-speaking Africans and Afro-Latin Americans. Their transdisciplinary endeavor will help illuminate discussions of colonial encounters and decolonizing strategies on the part of Afro-Hispanics. In a series of conference papers and essays, they will examine the use and manipulation of classical idioms in imperial enterprises and in Black political and aesthetic activity. Based on theoretical approaches that delve into questions of cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, race, ethnicity and gender, the ultimate aim of this project is to foster a better understanding of current societal issues such as nation/border formation, displacement, migration, membership, community building, civic participation, women's rights, and revolutionary thought.
