Death: Confronting the Great Divide

Speaker Series
Center for Humanities and the Public Sphere

Drawing on both historical and contemporary examples, invited speakers in this eight-part series will draw our attention to the inevitability of the end facing all living creatures, the various ways in which humans have learned to live with knowledge of their mortality, and how bereavement rituals impact our environment and community. With input from scholars in a range of disciplines, including scholars of history, religion, environmental studies, Latin American studies, history of medicine,and art history, the series reveals how learning in the humanities can help us better understand one of the most integral parts of life: the end of life.

This event is free and open to the public and includes time afterward for questions and discussion.

Film Screening: Blaxploitation
Fred Kuwornu
Fri. Nov. 18, 5pm, Pugh Hall 170

Film screening followed by Q&A with filmmaker

#DiversityinMediaMatters is a transnational dialogue format led by filmmaker-activist Fred Kuwornu, based on the screening of his documentary Blaxpolitation 100 Years of Blackness in Italian Cinema (2016), a disaporic, hybrid, critical, and cosmopolitan dimension documentary that uncovers the careers of a population of entertainers seldom heard from before: Black actors in Italian cinema. Blaxploitation cleverly discloses the personal struggles that classic Afro-Italian and African diaspora actors faced, correlating it with the contemporary actors who work diligently to find respectable and significant roles. More than an unveiling of history, it is a call-to-action for increased diversity and esteem in international cinema.

Presented by Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Center for European Studies, Center for African Studies, UF International Center, and the College of Arts' Center for World Studies
