Antigone in the Americas: Decolonizing the Classics

November 4, 2021 - 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Andrés Henao Castro; Moira Fradinger

Register here:

Join us for a book launch of Andrés Fabián Henao Castro's "Antigone in the Americas: Democracy, Sexuality and Death in the Settler Colonial Present" (New York: SUNY, 2021), which will be discussed by Comparative Literature Professor, Moira Fradinger. Grounded on settler colonial critique, black and woman of color feminisms, and queer and trans of color critique, Antigone in the Americas argues for a decolonial reinterpretation of Sophocles' classical tragedy, Antigone, that can help us rethink the anti-colonial politics of militant mourning in the Americas for subjects situated under multiple and interlocking systems of oppression.
