Colloquium on Ethnicity and Diaspora

The Colloquium on Ethnicity and Diaspora (CED) provides a vibrant intellectual community for students and faculty to foster active research interests in Asian American studies, African American studies, Latino/a studies, Native American Studies, and related fields, such as globalization studies and other ethnic studies.  Established in 2006-2007 the CED hosts monthly meetings ranging from pre-circulated paper presentations of works in advanced stages of completion, to book discussions, to lectures and presentations by key scholars working on ethnicity and diaspora.

Coordinated by Pavithra Prasad and Kareem Khubchandani, graduate students in Performance Studies, the 2009-2010 CED meetings will continue to foster discussions on race, ethnicity and diaspora with a specific focus on these themes: transnational racial and ethnic formations and the specific performances or cultural articulations of diasporic communities; borderland theory, transnational flows; new directions in postcolonial theory; studies of affect; political economy; representation and media studies.

We welcome scholars from all fields to share their work at the CED. We have a limited number of slots open, so please let us know soon if you would like to participate as a presenter. Please email Pavi (pavithra.prasad@u.northwestern.edu) or Kareem (kareemkhubchandani2013@u.northwestern.edu) with a short description of your work by September 21, 2009.
