Michelle Wright: Global Blackness

Calendar @ Emory - Tue, 01/16/2018 - 18:11
Kemp Malone Library (Callaway N301)
Friday, January 19, 2018, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. EST

GPS invites you to start your semester (w)right next Friday, Jan 19 at 3:30 PM with a talk on "Global Blackness”

Michelle M. Wright is Augustus Baldwin Longstreet Professor of English at Emory. Her research focuses on literary, cultural, philosophical and political discourses on Blackness and Black identity in the Anglophone, Francophone, and Germanophone African Diaspora, from the 18th to 21stcenturies. Professor Wright’s first book, Becoming Black: Creating an Identity in the African Diaspora (Duke UP 2004) establishes an intellectual genealogy of Blackness from Other to subject in West Africa, the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean, the United States, and Western Europe across the 18th, 19thand 20th centuries. Physics of Blackness: Beyond the Middle Passage Epistemology (UMN Press, 2015) uses theories of time from lay discourses in theoretical physics, philosophy, history, and literature to show how theorizations of Blackness become more accurate and inclusive when we move from understanding Blackness as a “what” to a “when” and a “where”. Her current project, Feeling Europe: Black and African Diasporas in the Heart of Empire looks at how space, place and affect destabilizes yet expands notions of home and racial belonging.

Rupture and Return Lessons from the Makhuwa

Calendar @ Emory - Tue, 01/16/2018 - 18:11
White Hall 103
Thursday, January 25, 2018, 4 – 5:30 p.m. EST

Rupture and Return Lessons from the Makhuwa

Based on nearly two years of fieldwork, Devaka Premawardhana’s first project explores the complexities of Christian identity in a part of the world where indigenous traditions remain vibrant, even in the lives of converts. In this talk, Premawardhana will share lessons learned from the field—not just about his research topic, but about life itself. He will address how he came to appreciate the eclectic and elusive nature of the self—including of himself—from a people who prize mobility over stasis, and for whom religious conversion is experienced as routine, reversible, and repeatable.

2018 U.S.-China Young Scholars Forum

Two evolving events may impact global peace and prosperity in the coming years. First, President Donald Trump is drastically changing America’s domestic and foreign policies under the slogan “Make America Great Again.” Second, President Xi Jinping has launched a set of policies that he similarly claims will make China great again. Both leaders are driven by nationalism, which has been magnified by both conventional and new media. In fact, the mix of nationalism and media has fundamentally altered the dynamics and equilibrium of the bilateral relations between the US and China. The concern that the interests of the two nations may be on a collision course has been greatly enhanced by President Xi’s report at the National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party in October and the release of the Trump Administration’s 2018 National Security Strategy in December 2017.

On January 30, 16 young scholars from China and the US will present their findings on how nationalism and the media are influencing bilateral relations. On January 31 at 4 p.m., five well-known Chinese and American opinion makers will engage each other in a debate on whether the US and China are adversaries and what can be done to reduce misperception and hostility between Washington and Beijing. Many say this relationship is too big to fail; others say it is too big and complex to manage. We will see what these scholars say about this most consequential relationship in the 21st century.
