Reading and Conversation with Professor Saidiya Hartman

What:

Email GA Lisette (enumah@gse.upenn.edu) to reserve your free ticket to this event! Limited tickets available.

The Penn Book Center, the Department of Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and ICA present Professor Saidiya Hartman in dialogue with ICA curator Meg Onli to discuss the release of Professor Hartman’s new volume, Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social Upheaval. Hartman’s work examines the revolution of black intimacy in Philadelphia and New York in the early twentieth century and centers the experiences of young, black, urban women who sought to develop lives that were not prescribed by respectability and the law. The conversation will also center core themes of Onli’s exhibition, Colored People Time: Mundane Futures.

This event is taking place at Penn Book Center, at 130 S. 34th Street.

Saidiya Hartman is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University, and her interests include African American and American literature and cultural history, slavery, law and literature, and performance studies.

Philadelphia Zoo Trip!

What:

I will be offering a trip to the Philadelphia Zoo on February 23. The tentative plan is to get there at noon, and stay for probably 2 hours. If there is popular demand we could go eat somewhere nearby afterwards. I am planning on offering 5 slots, but to ensure that this initiative is successful I would appreciate it if you emailed me your interest in going. Thanks in advance. Please do so by close of business/6PM on Feburary 20.

Dinner with the Director

What:

Join the Director of Upper Class Houses (and the interim dean of Harnwell), Dr. Janine M. Weaver-Douglas for dinner in the spring semester! Being new to Philly, UPenn and Harnwell, I (Dr. JMWD) want to get to know as many residents as possible, while eating great food and having great conversation. Sound like something you might be interested in?

 

This is a limited seat event, with just 10 spots available for each dinner, so don’t wait! Each dinner has a theme, including some favorites like: Meeting in the Conference Room, Five Minutes (everything about the classic tv series, The Office); March Madness (only fitting that we spend some time bracket busting and judging other school’s basketball programs); This Semester is Literally Never Going to End (when you’re in the post-spring break wasteland, and otherwise overwhelmed with life); I’ll Make A Man Out of You (why Mulan might be the greatest animated movie ever, and an opportunity to stand on your Disney/Pixar soapbox for other contenders); and others!
