Literature, Gender and Culture: A Cross Cultural Conversation

Dr. Gina Athena Ulysse
March 31, 9 a.m.
Scanlon Living Room

This event will bring together guest Dr. Gina Athena Ulysse, speakers from multiple disciplines including anthropology, women, gender and sexuality studies, literature and cultural studies to engage in a conversation about global studies through a diverse cultural lens.

Dr. Ulysse is a Haitian American feminist artist-anthropologist-activist and professor at Wesleyan University. She is also a performance artist, poet and multi-media artist. A dynamic performer, described by artist Evan Bissell as “a powerhouse and a whirling storm,” and historian Robin D.G. Kelley as “a one-woman aftershock,” Gina Athena Ulysse has performed variations of her one-woman show Because When God is Too Busy: Haiti, Me and The World at conferences and in colleges and universities throughout the United States and internationally.
