    We are pleased to announce and invite you to our second „Study Day“ within the team-teaching framework of the „Cultural Studies Colloquium.“  Our topic for this semester and our „Study Day“ next Wednesday is „The Body (and Bodies) in Cultural Studies and Cultural Practice.“

    The day will begin with a guest lecture by Jasper J. Verlinden (Humboldt University zu Berlin): „I want to write about the pain: Notes on a Trans of Color Cripistemology“ and continue with short presentations and student-initiated discussions.

    Jasper J. Verlinden is a PhD candidate and lecturer in the department of English and American Studies with emphasis on Postcolonial Studies at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. He is currently working on his dissertation project which reads late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Native American and Asian American writings in relation to bureaucratic and administrative practices and archives.  Within this project, he is specifically interested in the tensions and interrelations between immigration and indigeneity in US settler colonial structures of racial differentiation. He has published on trans representation, affect and disability, and legal personhood in the context of border crossings. His interests include queer and trans studies, critical race and ethnic studies, and disability studies.
