“Ethnography of an Idea: There’s a Disco Ball Between Us”

This meditation on contemporary transnational Black/queer/diaspora politics and sociality shifts scales, and follows disparate itineraries — re-narrating the long 1980s and assaying new ways toward Black (and) queer futures.

Co-sponsored by Center for Humanities, Department of Anthropology, and Department of African and African American Studies
