Dear Friends,

The Premodern Colloquium. Cervantine Blackness

Nicholas Jones, Yale University
Sunday, February 19, 2023
4:00-6:00 PM
This presentation focuses on Miguel de Cervantes’s literary archive of Blackness. It builds on previously published public engagement work from a co-authored op-ed essay with Chad Leahy that went viral, titled “Cervantes y la materia de las vidas negras” (“Cervantes and the Matter of Black Lives”).

The proposed contribution argues for a more nuanced critical reckoning with the cultural, historical, and literary legacies of antiblackness within the Iberian Peninsula and the global reaches of its empire.
