May 25, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
The Center for Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:
Tamara Spira, UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellow in Cultural Studies, UC Davis
“Neoliberal Captivities: Pisagua Prison and the Low Intensity Form”
Doctor Spira works at the intersections of feminist, comparative ethnic and hemispheric American studies, and is completing Movements of Feeling: Neoliberalism, Affect and (Post) Revolutionary Memory in the Americas. The talk provides a reading of (the now converted) Pisagua prison in northern Chile, which intermittently served as a concentration camp for leftists and “sexual dissidents” throughout the 20th century.
Tamara Spira is the UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellow in Cultural Studies at UC Davis.
