Women In Carnival Symposium
Exploring Diasporic Carnival and Festival Cultures
African, Asian, European, Indigenous, and Latin American cultural forms
are entwined through power, embodiment, and play both within and outside the Caribbean region. In this interdisciplinary symposium we will be exploring, through the lens of Carnival and (mas)querade, subversive displays of power, the politics of racialized, sexualized & nationalized bodies, and the trickster energy of play. Join us in discourse and dance!
