MCLCC Presents: Wicked Souls and Bodies

Wicked Souls and Bodies: Evil Spirits, Sexuality, Gender, and Violence in the Lore of the African Diaspora Jacqueline Couti, Gisele Anatol, Paula Sato, Matthew J. Pettway University of Kentucky Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 5:00pm to 7:00pm, Fine Arts Library, Study Room 1

While the African diaspora generally describes the dispersal(s) of African-descended peoples throughout the world from modernity to the present, it demands the sighting of various contexts, causes, results, and memories. This symposium’s focus on the African diaspora as articulated in transatlantic contexts provides a platform that underscores diversity and the human condition in a national and transnational manner. The cultural, linguistic, ethnic/racial, and generational dynamics of the Black Atlantic provide a fruitful intellectual context for exploring the roles of problematic acts of agency in oppressive spaces.
