When European empires expanded outward to rule much of the world in the 15th to 20th centuries, they were not only engaged in a political project, but in an intellectual project as well. This conference examines the historical reception, revision, and redirection of European ideas by intellectuals in colonized societies. Presentations will focus on intellectuals in India, North Africa, the Caribbean, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Philippines.

2014-15 CLLAS Graduate Research Grant awardee Charlie Hankin, Department of Music and Dance (Music Performance)
UO graduate student Charlie Hankin is working on a preliminary oral history study of the reception and dissemination of hip hop lyrics in Cuba as a means for exploring race and identity on both local and global levels. He conducted a series of interviews in Havana of young writers, artists, and intellectuals before, during, and after the International Hip Hop Festival in early August 2014. In particular, he examined the reception and dissemination of the lyrics of Los Aldeanos, a group given prominent billing at the festival in 2013 and identified in a 2006 New York Times article as part of “Cuba’s Rap Vanguard.”

Globalization has blurred the boundaries between the Global North and the Global South and complicated the study of, and policy issues related to, women, gender, and development. International flows of people (as tourists, migrants, refugees, and trafficked persons), capital and financial resources, ideas, policies, technologies, have presented both new challenges and new opportunities for those interested in the goals of gender equality and meaningful development. Additionally, the emergence of cross-border development challenges, such as environmental degradation, has pushed researchers interested in gender and development to move beyond national boundaries. This conference is intended to build on and further the literature on gender and development by challenging scholars to consider the ways in which transnational flows of capital, people, and information affect gendered processes and visions of development, broadly conceived.
