The Black Student Union and African Students Association present a lecture by Dagmawi Woubshet, the Ahuja Family Presidential Associate Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania.
A scholar of African American literature and art, Dagmawi Woubshet works at the intersections of African American, LGBTQ and African studies. These overlapping areas of inquiry inform his scholarship and research, including his book "The Calendar of Loss: Race, Sexuality, and Mourning in the Early Era of AIDS" (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2015), and the co-edited volume "Ethiopia: Literature, Art, and Culture," a special issue of Callaloo (2010).
