Launch and Celebration of Andrea Davis’ New Book – Horizon, Sea, Sound: Caribbean and African Women’s Cultural Critiques of Nation
LA&PS professor and leading academic in Black Diasporic Studies, Andrea Davis, is out with her latest publication Horizon, Sea, Sound: Caribbean and African Women’s Cultural Critiques of Nation. In this new book, Davis engages with Caribbean and African women’s art (including poetry, novels, theatre and music) to bring attention to the ways in which they challenge conventional, competitive, forms of belonging suggested by the nation-state. Horizon, Sea and Sound is a major addition to Davis’ existing scholarship in Black Studies and will interest readers of literary and cultural studies, critical race theories and Black Diasporic Studies.
The book launch and celebration is taking place on Thurs, April 21, 2022 at Artscape Wychwood Barns and registration is free. Catch Andrea Davis in conversation with Christina Sharpe from the Department of Humanities at York University, Rinaldo Walcott from the Women and Gender Studies Institute at the University of Toronto, Eve Tuck from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto and Ola Mohammed from the Department of Humanities at York University with music by DJ Grumps. This event is being held in partnership with CRC in Black Studies in the Humanities and LA&PS, York University, Another Story Bookshop and Artscape Wychwood Barns.
