John L Warfield Center

The Ghana Maymester Symposium

Wed, October 9, 2019 | GWB Multipurpose Room, 2.206

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The 2019 Ghana Maymester cohort will share reflections, speculations, videos and performances from their recent coursework.  While in Ghana, they were learning ethnographic methods, examining the role of trauma in Black Studies, and considering art as a tool for individual and communal healing. This will be an opportunity to explore the possibilities and boundaries of African diasporic community-building with students who are eager to share their experiences.


Refreshments will be served
