Keynote Address by Dr. James Cone.
Organized by Professors Tracey Hucks and Kim Benston
Beginning with a keynote address by Dr. James H. Cone, whose current research analogizes the Christian cross and the lynching tree, "Fragments of Bodies" culminates in a full-day symposium featuring scholars working across multiple disciplines to explore the painful history and continuing legacy of lynching in America. Inflecting issues at the forefront of current research in American and African-American cultural studies, the panelists will probe lynching from varied perspectives, including: the ethics and politics of spectacle, sound, and representation; religion and violence; place, gender, and citizenship; and the continuing relevance of traumatic experience.
Part of the President's Social Justice Speaker Series.
