Van Pelt Library, 2nd Floor, Meyerson Conference Room 

Please join the Penn Libraries for a conversation with Professor Dagmawi Woubshet, Ahuja Family Presidential Associate Professor of English.

Professor Woubshet will be talking about his current book project, which is on James Baldwin’s later writings and writing style. He'll be looking at new ways to cast light on Baldwin’s late works and also sharing some insight into the new archives that have become available that make his project possible! 

Professor Woubshet's scholarship focuses on African American Literature and art, and intersects with LGBTQ and African studies. His publications include 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).

Research teas provide an opportunity to learn more about ongoing research on the Penn campus in an informal setting with tea and cookies. We look forward to seeing you there!
