Conversations in Latinx Art brings together the Oakland-based award-winning performance artist Xandra Ibarra and interdisciplinary scholar Dr. Ivan Ramos (Assistant Professor, University of Maryland) to reflect on queer Latinidad and its deployment as a form of resilience and endurance against political hostility. Drawing on scholarship in Latinx and gender and sexuality studies and Ibarra’s oeuvre, the pair will also reflect on their many years of friendship to elaborate on the creation and impact of queer femme Latinx performance.
Free and open to the public. Q&A and reception to follow.
A CSREA Faculty Grant Event: Leticia Alvarado, Assistant Professor, American Studies and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Ethnic Studies. Co-sponsored by the Charles K. Colver Lectureships and Publications Fund.
