Overview
Locations

Brown University professor Dixa Ramírez will explore the Dominican Republic’s relationship to the West and racial construction in the lecture, “Dominican Blackness, Ghosting, and Bad Patriots.” The talk will be held Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium, 360 W. Louther St. The program will be preceded by a screening of the film “Cocote,” which was shot entirely in the Dominican Republic, on Monday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. in Althouse Hall, Room 106, 45 N. College St. Both events are free and open to the public.

Ramírez will explore the miscategorization and misperception of the Dominican Republic in Western academia and Western culture. She will examine the ways film, architecture, fiction and poetry combat the Dominican Republic’s exclusion from the imagination of the Americas.
