Event Details

Anthropologist Michel-Rolph Trouillot, who died this past year, left a major body of work that has shaped the study of the Caribbean and the Atlantic World. His analytical point of departure was the experience and conduct of power. Trouillot's interest in methodologies of ethnography and theory-building, memory and historiography, and the relationship between poetics and empiricism ranged from the micro-level of Caribbean peasantries to the macro-level of globalization.

Celebrating this major body of work that continues to influence scholarship in the humanities and social sciences, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) is hosting a day-long symposium, co-organized by Aisha Khan (Department ofAnthropology), Katherine Smith (2012-2015 Fellow, CLACS), and Jill Lane (Director, CLACS), and co-sponsored by the Dept of Anthropology, the Dept of History, the Humanities Initiative, the Program in Latino Studies, Institute for French Studies, and the Program in Africana Studies.

The symposium will feature a keynote address by Colin Dayan, an opening invocation by performance artist Gina Ulysse, and presentations by Michael Dash, Harvey Neptune, Mayanthi Fernando, Dahoud Andre, Yarimar Bonilla, Vanessa Agard-Jones, Millery Polyne, Mariana Past, Nathalie Pierre, and Dasha Chapman.

You can find the full program schedule here.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Dept of Anthropology, the Dept of History, the Humanities Initiative, the Program in Latino Studies, Institute for French Studies, The Center for Media, Culture, and History, and the Program in Africana Studies.
