Lázaro Lima (University of Richmond, Virginia), "Latino Studies, Identity Claims, and the Closing of the Democratic Commons in the Neoliberal University”

This seminar paper considers the contradictions that emerge when bodies of knowledge are confounded with racialized bodies in the U.S. academy at the dawning of a new civil rights era instantiated by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, and the Brown Commons Project (BCP). In doing so, this talk considers how the field of Latino studies, as a latecomer to academic institutionalization, might reformulate the conditions under which the inclusion of endangered knowledge, and endangered bodies, is either granted or denied in the neoliberal university.

Part of the Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies research seminar series 2017/18
