Subjectivities beyond Identity in North America and the Caribbean
A special session. Presiding: Sergio Gutiérrez Negrón, Emory Univ.
Speakers: Abraham Acosta, Univ. of Arizona, Tucson; Laura G. Gutierrez, Univ. of Texas, Austin; Sergio Gutiérrez Negrón; Sheri-Marie Harrison, Univ. of Missouri, Columbia; Rebecca Janzen, Bluffton Coll.; Samuel Steinberg, Univ. of Southern California
Panelists provide ways to think beyond identity when describing cultural and social subjectivities in Mexico, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica and in the different transnational flows among them. The panel engages with the possibilities of accounting for contemporary subjectivities in the region without asserting identity as a transcendental signifier or an end in itself.
