Latitudes

Housed at Penn English, Latitudes is a graduate reading group that spotlights issues of transnationalism, postcoloniality, race, empire, and globalization across time and space. We provide an encouraging forum for intellectual exchange across a vast range of disciplines such as literature, anthropology, history, economics, sociology, and gender/sexuality studies. Every year, Latitudes welcomes critics, writers, and filmmakers from the region and beyond to present and discuss their impressive new work. In addition to faculty from Penn, other past speakers have included Kandice Chuh, Anupama Rao, Meg Wesling, film directors Grace Lee (American Revolution: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs) and Sanjay Kak (Red Ant Dream). We also warmly invite other graduate students in their dissertating stage to use the forum as a workshop for their research in progress.
