“Place, Memory and the Diaspora”

Join us for a CSSJ Lunch Talk with VP Shontay Delalue and Maiyah Gamble-Rivers, entitled, “Place, Memory and the Diaspora.”

Dr. Shontay Delalue is currently Vice President of the Office of Institutional Equity & Diversity (OIED) while a national search is conducted for Cariaga-Lo’s successor. My research explores the intersections of race and international student experience. I also provide strategic leadership in support of international students at all levels of the University. As the direct liaison to Campus Life, the Dean of the College office and the Graduate School I collaborate closely with key offices and colleagues across the University to improve support and inclusion for the international community on campus. I joined the Brown community in 2013, becoming the inaugural director of international student & visitor experience/assistant dean of the college. In this role, I was responsible for leading efforts to organize and improve the experience of international students as well as visiting students and scholars in support of Brown's broader internationalization efforts. In July 2016, my portfolio expanded when I was selected as the coordinator of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship program which I still coordinate and appointed as adjunct assistant professor of American Studies.

Maiyah Gamble-Rivers is a recent Brown University Graduate, receiving her Masters in Public Humanities and completing her fellowship at the Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice (CSSJ). She now serves as the Manager of Programs and Outreach for the CSSJ, curating exhibitions, nationally and abroad, developing programs and curriculum for high school students in the city of Providence. Recently she developed a curriculum, led workshops and accompanied students on a Civil Rights Trip throughout the south with 30 Baltimore high school students. Her other project, Uncovering the Institution: The American Dream, To Be Sold Not Told invites high school students to stay on campus for the week and examine the American Dream through the lens of the institution and institutionalized oppression. Giving students the opportunity to curate their own exhibit, youth will ultimately try to answer the question, what does the American Dream mean in the 21st century?

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP.
