Friday, November 13, 2020 @ 2:00 pm

Join us for a live webinar roundtable featuring Princeton voices from across disciplines considering the strategies used by Latinx artists to combat the social and political forces that obscure the lived experiences of marginalized communities. The panel will engage recent scholarship on the representation of Latinx bodies and feature work by Latin American artists recently added to the Museum’s collections. Panelists include Javier Guerrero, Associate Professor, Department of Spanish and Portuguese and Director of Undergraduate Studies; Susana Draper, Associate Professor, Comparative Literature; and Christina León, Assistant Professor, English. Moderated by Beth Gollnick, Curatorial Associate in Photography and Modern and Contemporary Art.
