The Department of English MUSE Scholars Program presents a lecture by Dr. Omaris Z. Zamora, “Delectable Complicities From El Ni’ E: AfroLatinx Feminisms of Cardi B & La Bella Chanel.” Dr. Zamora is assistant professor of Afro-Latinx Studies at Rutgers University. Her book project, AfroLatina (Trance)formations: Poetics of Black Embodied Archives and Feminist Epistemologies, engages the theoretical formation of AfroLatina feminist epistemologies through an analysis of transnational Dominican women’s narratives in literature and performance. As a spoken-word poet she fuses her poetry with her scholarly work as a way of contributing to a black poetic approach to literature and cultural studies.
