Abstract: TBA

AGUA, Anthropology Graduate Students at the University of Arizona, invites you to our 2021 AGUA Lecture Series event. Taking advantage of the opportunities provided by Zoom, we will be breaking from our normal Lecture Series format to host Race and Anthropology: A Special AGUA Lecture Series. On March 18 and March 25, during the regular Thursday School of Anthropology Lecture Series slots, AGUA will host four guest lectures (selected by grad student vote) from across the discipline to address issues of race, racism, and anti-racism efforts within anthropology, academia, and society as a whole. Each day, two guest lecturers will present 25–30 minute talks. The invited speakers are presented below with their respective speaking dates and event starting times; lecture titles are TBA.

  • March 25, 2:00 p.m.: Dr. Agustín Fuentes and Dr. Sanchita Balachandran 

On Friday, March 26, we will culminate this event by hosting a virtual discussion panel between all four guest lectures titled "Race and Anthropology: A Four-Field Conversation." This discussion panel starts at 3 PM. 

A flyer with more information about this series will be sent out as we get closer to the event.
