Professor Ferguson will discuss how interdisciplinary fields, including Ethnic Studies and Queer Studies, are constituted by their negotiation with political power beyond the university and institutional power within it. As part of his talk, Professor Ferguson will address Wake Forest's present endeavors to research and document its racist past, including student and faculty activism, and he will speak to our present efforts to establish programs and centers of study on race and African American Studies. A panel of Wake Forest faculty --  Kristina Gupta, Assistant Professor, Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; William Mosley, Mellon Assistant Professor in the Interdisciplinary Humanities; and Corey D.B. Walker, Wake Forest Professor of the Humanities -- will reflect on and respond to Professor Ferguson's talk immediately after he concludes.
