Americanist Speaker Series: Stephanie Li

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The UNC-Duke Americanist Speaker Series presents Stephanie Li, Professor of African & African American Studies at Duke University. Her talk will concern the topic of her latest book, Ugly White People: Writing Whiteness in Contemporary America, which “explores representations of whiteness from twenty-first-century white American authors as they grapple with whiteness as its own construct rather than a wrongly assumed norm. Revealing white recognition of the ugly forms whiteness can take, Stephanie Li examines the tension between acknowledging whiteness as an identity built on domination and the failure to remedy inequalities that have proliferated from this founding injustice.”
