The Notre Dame Initiative on Race and Resilience and the Department of Anthropology are hosting Dr. Ariana Curtis for a virtual talk on Tuesday, February 8 at 4:00pm.
Ariana Curtis is the first curator of Latinx Studies at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and the current Director of Content for the Smithsonian’s Our Shared Future: Reckoning with Our Racial Past. As a Black Latina curator and researcher, she is committed to archiving the experiences of everyday Black people, particularly Black women, in Latin America, the U.S., and the Caribbean. She will present a talk entitled “When and Where I Enter: Curatorial Representation and Impact.” See the attached poster for a detailed abstract.
This is the third in a series of four talks this academic year that align with Professor Tracie Canada’s “Black Ethnographers” course in Anthropology. These visits, supported by the Initiative on Race and Resilience, will be hosted via Zoom and are open to all.
