Please join us in welcoming Richa Nagar, Professor of the College, Russell M. & Elizabeth M. Bennett Chair in Excellence and Beverly & Richard Fink Professor of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota to campus.

Professor Nagar's intellectual, pedagogical and creative labor focuses on writing lives and struggles across the borders of languages, genres, disciplines, and geographical locations.

Her talk will be based on her forthcoming book, Hungry Translations: Relearning the World Through Radical Vulnerability, which builds on her previous groundbreaking works Playing With Fire: Feminist Thought and Activism through Seven Lives in India (2006) and Muddying the Waters: Coauthoring Feminisms Across Scholarship and Activism (2014).
