New Faculty Seminar: David Glisch-Sànchez, “‘Listen to what your jotería is saying’, Pain, Silence, and Queer Latinxs”
February 26 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us for the New Faculty Seminar Series where we will feature the work of new colleagues in the Humanities at UB. By bringing together scholars from a variety of fields, we hope that these seminars will initiate and encourage the development of interdisciplinary conversations.
This brown bag lunch seminar series is free and open to the public; coffee and cookies will be served.
David Luis Glisch-Sánchez is Assistant Professor of Global Gender & Sexuality Studies. This talk draws upon 32 life-story interviews conducted by Professor Glisch-Sánchez, to date, with LGBTQ-identified Latinxs. Through their life stories, Glisch-Sánchez has observed how Latinx queer people utilize a collection of narrative and linguistic techniques or maneuvers, which he has come to call pained utterances, that provide a means for queer Latinx folks to communicate fully the spectrum of social harm and pain they encounter while simultaneously making meaning of that harm and pain and forwarding a critique of the very power structures that create these events.
