Hemispheric Institute’s GSI – October 5

Cheryl will be speaking in October at Unsettling the Americas: Radical Hospitalities and Intimate Geographies, sponsored by the Hemispheric Institute. This event is an invitation to respond critically, aesthetically, and kinetically to the idea of “meeting grounds”—inflected, as it is, with histories of settlement, displacement, and resettlement throughout the Americas.

Inspired by the Hemispheric Institute’s work developed throughout the Americas, the Hemi Graduate Student Initiative (Hemi GSI) aims to bring together dedicated people who are interested in working at the intersection of scholarship, artistic expression and politics. We work to promote embodied practices as a vehicle for the creation of new meaning and the transmission of cultural values, memory and identity. Join us as we gather and blur our lines as teachers, students, artists and activists.
