The Race, Indigeneity, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Initiative (RIGS) is pleased to announce that we are hosting a virtual book release event for Professor Elliott Powell on December 2, 2020 from 5:15 to 6:45pm.
This is the first in our RIGS Scholar Spotlight Series where we invite a panel of speakers to engage and comment on a recently published work or creative endeavor by RIGS scholars, followed by an audience Question and Answer session.
To celebrate the release of Elliott Powell's Sounds from the Other Side Afro–South Asian Collaborations in Black Popular Music (UMN Press, 2020), LaMonda Horton-Stallings (Chair, African American Studies, Georgetown), Kareem Khubchandani (Mellon Assistant Professor, Dance & Drama and Women's Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Tufts University), Yuichiro Onishi (Chair, African American and African Studies, UMN-TC), and Zenzele Isoke (Chair, Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies, UMN-TC) will give comments and engage in a lively discussion of the book. Speakers will be joined by Bianet Castellanos (Chair, American Studies, UMN-TC), who will start us off with an introduction, and by Kat Hayes, RIGS Director, who will serve as moderator.
