Up Coming Events

UF Synergies: Current Scholarship in the Humanities

Gender, Ethnicity, and Citizenship in the Caribbean

Friday, 8 December – 4:00pm-5:00pm, Grinter Hall 471 (Center for African Studies Conference Room)

Daily Heroics: Women, Material Culture, and Everyday Life in Revolutionary Cuba, 1959-1989
Alexis Baldacci, 2017-18 Rothman Doctoral Fellow (Dept. of History)

In her dissertation, Alexis Baldacci explores everyday life in revolutionary Cuba to determine how state policies surrounding production and consumption have impacted ideas about the relationship between state and citizen, popular conceptions of the revolution’s legitimacy and longevity, and gender relations in individual households and wider society. In this presentation, she will discuss the methodology behind the project and the challenges and opportunities of conducting research in Cuba.

A Tale of Two Rivers: Sacralizing Local Landscape through Memory Performance
Prea Persaud, 2017-18 Rothman Doctoral Fellow (Dept. of Religion)

This presentation describes the ways in which two Hindu organizations have sacralized the local landscape of Trinidad by drawing on two different types of memory, one personal and one collective.  Persaud argues that these two types of memory performances are indicative of the hyphenated identity of Hindu Indo-Caribbeans who draw on multiple pasts in order to establish and maintain their unique Hindu community with Trinidad.

This event is part of the 2017-18 UF Synergies: Current Scholarship in the Humanities series, which features informal talks by the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere’s Rothman Faculty Summer Fellows, Tedder Doctoral Fellows, and Rothman Doctoral Fellows. Fellows will each speak for 20 minutes about their funded work, leaving ample time for questions and discussion amongst the projects.
