The Spring 2020 book selection for the joint Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World Program and African American Studies is Every Nation Has Its Dish: Black Bodies & Black Food in Twentieth-Century America by Jennifer Jensen Wallach. The book club meeting (there will only be one since it’s a relatively short book) will be lead by Jacob Steere-Williams. If you are interested in participating, please let Sandy Slater know and she’ll send you a copy of the book via campus mail. Once we have a group of interested parties we will create a doodle-poll to find the best time for our meeting.
December 5th at 5pm
A brief panel for contexualizing the election will be followed by break-out sessions on a wide range of topics such as transphobia, voting rights, sexism, anti-semitism, homophobia, white supremacy, and engaging with family across political divides.
Sponsored by African American Studies, History, International Studies, Office of Institutional Diversity, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Sociology and Anthropology, Teacher Education, and Women and Gender Studies.
