This event will bring together guest Dr. Gina Athena Ulysse, speakers from multiple disciplines including anthropology, women, gender and sexuality studies, literature and cultural studies to engage in a conversation about global studies through a diverse cultural lens.
Dr. Ulysse is a Haitian American feminist artist-anthropologist-activist and professor at Wesleyan University. She is also a performance artist, poet and multi-media artist. A dynamic performer, described by artist Evan Bissell as "a powerhouse and a whirling storm," and historian Robin D.G. Kelley as "a one-woman aftershock," Gina Athena Ulysse has performed variations of her one-woman show Because When God is Too Busy: Haiti, Me and The World at conferences and in colleges and universities throughout the United States and internationally.
