The Black Studies Project: 50 Years and Counting

October 6, 2021
6:15 PM - 7:30 PM
Online Event

Born in the heat of struggle, the Black Studies movement in the United States looks back now at more than fifty years of curricular development and ahead to a hopeful future at least as long. This year’s Trilling Lecture examines the idea of the moment of Black Studies as protest on the streets of America is transformed, virtually overnight, into a curricular object—still controversial nonetheless—that has altered the face of humanistic study in the United States. The outcome is both a cause worthy of celebration and the occasion for a cautionary tale.

The Trilling Lecture will be given by Dr. Hortense Spillers with responses from Professors Rich Blint and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak.
