Veteran's Day
Event Image The Dominican Racial Imaginary
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies will host a special presentation and discussion of "The Dominican Racial Imaginary" with Professor Milagros Ricourt. In "The Dominican Racial Imaginary," Dr. Ricourt asks: Why do so many Dominicans deny the African components of their DNA, culture, and history? 

Ricourt uncovers a complex and often contradictory Dominican racial imaginary. Through fieldwork at the Dominican-Haitian border, she provides a firsthand narrative of how Dominicans are resisting the official account of their national identity, and instead embracing the African influence that has always been part of their cultural heritage. This book expands our understanding of how national and racial imaginaries develop, why they persist, and how they might be subverted.


Location: Segal Theatre/ The Graduate Center @ 365 Fifth Ave
