MKC Lecture: “The Voice of the Reader: Intertextual Readings of Black German Literature” with Dr. Andrea dawn Bryant

Thursday, February 9, 2022 at 6p ET
IUPUI – Cavanaugh Hall, room 223

This talk is free and open to all.  Limited parking vouchers will be available.

Talk abstract: Beginning with reflections of an influential quote by Audre Lorde, “your silence will not protect you,” this talk considers how Black German-speaking women authors employ intertextuality as a powerful form of literariness, empowerment, and activism. In it, I trace the lineage of this singular line as it appears transnationally across a series of genres and two languages to affect positive change. I conclude by inviting others to experience the original call through visual, audial, and multisensory cues.

Dr. Bryant is a lecturer of German at Appalachian State University.
