Shade Symposium

2021 April: “Beyond the Fields: Gender, Labor, and the Public Legacies of Puerto Rican Farm Workers and Needleworkers,” Shade Research Collective Symposium

The collective explores the intersections of labor, identity, mobility, and migration. The collective also leverages their disciplinary expertise to explore traditional and new media platforms for developing narratives around the global circuits of labor that linked tobacco cultivation to broader social and economic networks. SHADE will hold an April 2021 scholarly colloquium on our collaborative work as well as a public reckoning of the past through poetry and public and intergenerational engagement.
