There is a Disco Ball Between Us: A Conversation with Jafari Allen

 

We invite faculty and students to join anthropologist Jafari Allen in a discussion on decoloniality.  Associate Professor at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Miami, Jafari Allen is author of the critical ethnography of race, gender, sexuality, and revolution, ¡Venceremos?: The Erotics of Black Self-Making in Cuba; editor of Black/Queer/Diaspora– a special issue of GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies; and numerous scholarly and popular articles, book chapters, and blog posts. During the event, we will discuss their article, "The Decolonizing Generation: (Race and) Theory in Anthropology since the Eighties," and will read a short, unedited excerpt of his forthcoming book, There's a Disco Ball Between US: Ethnography of an Idea, another model for the sort of decolonial critical ethnographic project indexed in the article. Please RSVP in order to receive an electronic copy of the excerpt of Professor Allen's forthcoming book by emailing Pablo Seward at pseward@stanford.edu.
