Ramadan in Space Time: African American-Egyptian Encounters in 1960s Cairo

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 12:15pm

404 Morrill Hall 159 Central Ave, Ithaca NY 14853

Alex Lubin (University of New Mexico) will speak as part of the American Studies Spring Colloquium on 20th Century Black Internationalism.

A light lunch will be provided.

Lubin's scholarship engages global histories of race, the African Diaspora, and transnational American Studies, with a particular focus on U.S./Middle East relations. He is the author of Geographies of Liberation: The Making of an Afro-Arab Political Imaginary (2014) and Romance and Rights: The Politics of Interracial Intimacy, 1945-1954 (2004). Lubin is currently working on a history of a mid-nineteenth century naval ship called the USS Supply that was a key link in the global supply chain that enabled American expansion between the Mexican war and the Spanish American War. He is also writing a history of "free jazz," that developed in the North African context during the era of Bandung.
