Women In Carnival Symposium

Wednesday, May 25, 2022
UCSB UCEN - State Street Room
Mas Intersections:

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!
