Hemispheric Dialogue presents "Overheard/Undertheorized: Feminist Listening" led by Professors Alexandra Vazquez and Licia Fiol-Matta.
Please join Licia Fiol-Matta and Alexandra Vazquez as they listen out loud, together and apart, to songs in their current rotation. Come listen to music of the past to explore its contemporaneity, engaging the stubbornness of explicit and implicit protocols, of the stated and the unstated, of binaries and multiplicities, of the here and the there.
For the session, attendees are asked to listen to and read the following:
- Cachao, "Estudio En Trompeta"
- Celia Cruz, "Mango Mangue"
- Alexandra Vazquez, “The Mega Mezclapolis,” Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas(UC Press, 2016)
- Myrta Silva y Daniel Santos, “Noche de ronda”
- Freddy, “Noche de ronda”
- Licia Fiol-Matta, "Introduction: I Am Nothing!" The Great Woman Singer: Gender and Voice in Puerto Rican Music (Duke, 2017)
WHEN: Thursday, April 6th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
WHERE: Hemispheric Institute of Performance & Politics, 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor
*Live video broadcast will be available here, starting at 6 pm (EST)*
Hemispheric Dialogues invite key thinkers to lead discussions about some of the pressing issues of our time. The series envisions informal yet sustained dialogue among faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, artists, and members of the community.
