Luis A. Sahagun | Wednesday, November 20 | Broad Art Museum | 7pm
Luis Sahagun is an AAHD Artist-in-Residence: Critical Race Studies. Sahagun’s drawings, sculptures, paintings, and performances confront the palpable inescapability of race and transforms art into an act of reclamation. As a previously undocumented immigrant and former laborer, Sahagun’s work focus on the importance of Latinx cultures and contributions in order to combat the anti-immigration and anti-Latinx national rhetoric that persists throughout the country.
Support for this lecture is provided by the MSU Federal Credit Union, Broad Art Museum, The College of Arts and Letters, and the Department of Art, Art History, and Design.
We invite you to join us for our new alumni event that centers around careers in linguistics. Our guest speakers will be talking about their career paths and facilitate workshops.
Ai Taniguchi (Ph.D. 2017) will use her experience as a professor at Carleton University to teach you how to develop an accessible academic talk for students, community members, and future employers.
Steve Johnson (Ph.D. 2012) is a Lead Curriculum Designer at IXL Learning. He’ll help you navigate the career landscape outside academia, and to develop a résumé that translates your linguistic skills into business terms.
Join us Friday afternoon to meet Ai and Steve and hear about their career journeys. You can also watch a research lightning talk competition judged
by Ai, who was the winner of the 2019 Linguistics Society of America Five Minute Linguist Competition.
