Duke-UNC Directors’ Lecture Exchange Series: Dr. Claudia Milian

February 12, 2018 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am

Join us for the first lecture of the semester by Dr. Claudia Milian, Director of the Latino/a Studies in the Global South Program at Duke University.

2050: LatinX Odysseys

“2050: LatinX Odysseys” ​ ​is concerned with environmental forecasts and new forms of ​LatinX displacement​s​ and transitions. The ​talk turns to the intensity and uncertainty of climate ​change, to comprehend ecological crises through LatinX currents of the moment. The topsy-turvies of the present––the otherworldliness of the here and now––pulse on such queries as: What does it mean to work in the field of Latino/a Studies on this very day? Or, put another way: what does it mean to be in this Latino/a Studies moment using the most current research through LatinStudies? To “do” LatinStudies is to observe and tackle a series of unfolding transitions precisely through that X. This “X” is not so much what Latino/Latina/Latin “is,” but what and where it is moving toward, what it may become, and what it could inhabit. In ​brief: “2050: LatinX Odysseys” untangles the question: What does LatinX look like through climate change?
