Lecture: Priscilla Ybarra presents "Who Stole the Planet: Colonization, Capital, and Enslavement"
Priscilla Ybarra, associate professor of English at the University of North Texas, will explore how a consideration of environmental issues offers a way of studying commonalities and differences within the diversity of Latina/o/x literatures in a lecture titled “Who Stole the Planet.” Ybarra will argue that hierarchies established through colonization and capital have led to the destruction of the land as well as the domination of indigenous peoples and peoples of color.
This event is co-sponsored by the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts at Loyola Marymount University, the UCLA Dean of Humanities, the UCLA Laboratory for Environmental Strategies, the UCLA Department of English, and the CSRC. A reception will follow the presentation.
This event is free and open to the public.
