Fugitive Futures: Graduate Students of Color Un-Settling the University (This Friday and Saturday!)

fugtive future posterThis Friday and Saturday (March 1st & 2nd), UT-Austin will play host to the 18th Annual Sequels Symposium, co-organized by the Ethnic and Third World Literatures and Global South Collective graduate student groups. The symposium, entitled “Fugitive Futures: Graduate Students of Color Un-Settling the University,” will feature two days of graduate student panels as well as a keynote speech by Dr. Saidiya Hartman on Friday morning (9:30 A.M., Prothro Theater, Harry Ransom Center).

All participants will be presenting work, academic or otherwise, that takes up the general question:  “how might we negotiate our precarious positions in the university, and what are the stakes of articulating ourselves as ‘fugitives’ in relation to the academy?”
