Global Lecture Series at NYU

I’m excited to be this year’s speaker for the Global Lecture Series at New York University. The Global Lecture Series is a “signature Liberal Studies event that brings an internationally renowned speaker to Washington Square campus each academic year to encourage interdisciplinary, inspiring work across borders.” Previous speakers include Samuel Delany, Lila Abu-Lughod, Zina Saro-Wiwa, and Terrance Hayes. My lecture, scheduled to take place virtually on December 3rd, will be free and open to the public. See below for more details.


Liberal Studies, in collaboration with the NYU BeTogether Global Scholars & Innovators Series, is thrilled to welcome NYU students, faculty, administrators, alumni, the public and other members of the NYU community to the latest installment of the Global Lecture Series, which each year brings an internationally renowned speaker to Washington Square Campus. This year’s lecture is part of the LS NYUWomXn100 and Black Lives in Global Contexts series. Historian, author, and professor Keisha N. Blain will speak on The Struggle for Black Lives: Global Visions and Historical Legacies.
