"In Poor Taste: Thoughts on Sugar, Labor, and the Special Commodity"
 
Anjuli Raza Kolb, Williams College
Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium  6:00 pm
This talk posits zombi as an immanent theory of labor, consumption, and the material itinerary of what we call taste. Beginning with an account of Marx’s special commodity, Professor Raza Kolb will explore how production and consumption crystallize into a set of signs pointing beyond allegories of monstrosity, and beyond a West Indian aesthetics bounded by capital in the age of empire and today.

The Ghost of Cervantes: Don Quixote in La Mancha, Don Quixote in Manhattan
A lecture by Gerardo Piña-Rosales, Prof. of Spanish Literature at CUNY and Director of the North American Academy of the Spanish Language
Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium  5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The influence of Cervantes’ Don Quixote on contemporary literature is unmeasurable. Prof. Piña-Rosales will refer to works by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Gustav Flaubert and Franz Kafka, Herman Melville, Vladimir Nabokov and Kathy Acker, all haunted by the ghost of Cervantes. Piña-Rosales will also offer a reflection on possible contemporary readings of Don Quixote by analyzing various editions of the work that have recently appeared both in English translation and in Spanish, including the new commemorative edition by the Royal Spanish Academy.
 
This event is conceived as a tribute to the living ghost of Miguel de Cervantes, founder of the modern novel, at the occasion of the 400th anniversary of his death. Piña-Rosales’ lecture will be followed a bilingual reading of excerpts from his novella, Don Quijote en Manhattan/Don Quixote in Manhattan.
 
In English. Open to all.
 
For further information, please contact Prof. López-Gay.

Immersing Miami
Alexandra T. Vazquez, Associate Professor,
Department of Performance Studies, New York University

RKC 103  5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
This talk involves a willful submerging into the performance ecologies of Miami, Florida. The city, too often made mere fulcrum for many a geopolitical before and after, holds rich and established resources for creative practices. Far beyond a cultural wasteland or cold war terminus, Miami's artists have long made things from vast distances, inside precarious currents, outside of their families. “Immersing Miami” is and isn’t about the city; it is an exercise on how to write through the intimacies of the local and out towards parallel gatherings. The talk specifically works with the 1998 “Speed Split” series by the Cuban born, Miami-based artist Consuelo Castañeda (b. 1958) as an opportunity to transpose an artist’s visual mode into a musical response to displacement and dispossession. Castañeda extends a call to listen on the insides of the alienating narratives that drown Miami and in doing so enables us to hear robust aesthetic histories everywhere else.

Alexandra T. Vazquez was born in Miami, Florida. She is Associate Professor in the Department of Performance Studies at New York University. Her book, Listening in Detail: Performances of Cuban Music (Duke University Press 2013), won the American Studies Association’s Lora Romero Book Prize in 2014. Vazquez’s work has been featured in the journals American Quarterly, Social Text, women and performance, and the Journal of Popular Music Studies, and in the edited volumes Reggaeton and Pop When the World Falls Apart.
