You are cordially invited to a special "Meet & Greet" breakfast event with critically acclaimed and award winning science fiction writer and critic, Samuel R. Delany. Renown for his imaginative world building and critical insight, Delany's works address race, sexuality, and social issues, as well as perception, language, and the complexities of the human experience.
Space is limited for this unique opportunity. Kindly, use this RSVP Link to reserve a seat.
This event is a collaboration between the Modern Culture and Media, the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice, and Africana Studies at Brown University.
About Samuel Delany
Delany's prodigious literary talents are intimately informed by his experiences as a gay black man, the grandson of a freed slave and nephew of famous civil rights workers. He is also an acute observer of off-the-grid urban spaces, the textures of micro-neighborhoods, and queer locations; he's published some of these observations in his non-fiction book, Times Square Red/Times Square Blue and regularly on Facebook. He is also a well-known LGBTQ activistic and a charismatic personality.
Samuel Delany Residency
Samuel Delany will be at Brown from from November 6 through 10, and he will be doing a number of presentations and events on campus during that time (including giving the annual Henkle Memorial lecture; engaging in a conversation with visiting professor Kara Keeling at the John Hay Library; doing a Q&A after a film screening including a documentary about him as well as some of Delany's own films; and meetings with students and faculty from across multiple units at Brown, including MCM, Literary Arts, Africana Studies, the Pembroke Center, CSREA, CSJJ, the LGBTQ Center, etc.).
