Critical Speaker Series Lecture: Kevin Quashie’s “Here is the Hour: Thinking about Black Literary Criticism Now”

February 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Kevin Quashie’s virtual lecture “Here is the Hour: Thinking about Black Literary Criticism Now” is our first lecture in the Spring Critical Speakers Series lineup! His lecture promises to be an exciting start to the 2022 series! Dr. Quashie teaches black cultural and literary studies and is a professor in the department of English at Brown University. Primarily, he focuses on black feminism, queer studies, and aesthetics, especially poetics. He is the author or editor of four books, most recently The Sovereignty of Quiet: Beyond Resistance in Black Culture (2012) and Black Aliveness, or A Poetics of Being (2021). Currently, he is thinking about a book of black sentences and black ideas. UNC is lucky that he has agreed to speak on his most recent projects over Zoom!
