This event will explore the uniqueness and particularities of cultural production and the ubiquitousness in the transnational cultural industries of Caribbean subjects. Bringing together scholars of popular culture, race, and gender dynamics in the region, the presentations will explore the genealogies of Latino culture, migration and cultural borrowing, cultural networks, and the tensions between national identities and cosmopolitanism, high culture and popular culture.
Keynote will be delivered at the NYU King Juan Carlos Center (6:30 PM)
