Lecture – Waters Room, Zimmerman Library, Reception – Draft & Table, SUB
The Feminist Research Institute at the University of New Mexico invites you to attend the 5th Annual Distinguished Feminist Research Lecture. This year’s recipient of this award is Dr. Bernadine M. Hernández, associate professor in the Department of English Language & Literature. Since 2016, the Feminist Research Institute has recognized a UNM faculty member whose scholarly record of research and publication embody and reflect the mission of the Feminist Research Institute. Dr. Bernadine Marie Hernández’s scholarly profile, teaching and community activism demonstrate her commitment to women of color feminisms and advances an understanding of gender as necessarily linked to race, sexuality, and other social formations. The Feminist Research Institute is thrilled to honor Dr. Hernández’s achievements and invites the UNM campus community and beyond to learn about her recently published book, Border Bodies: Racialized Sexuality, Sexual Capital, and Violence in the Nineteenth-Century Borderlands (University of North Carolina Press, 2022).
The event will feature a lecture given by Dr. Hernández on her recent book, Border Bodies: Racialized Sexuality, Sexual Capital, and Violence in the Nineteenth-Century Borderlands (University of North Carolina Press, 2022). There will be copies of the book available for purchase with a book-signing immediately following the lecture. We also invite guests to a reception at Draft & Table in the SUB.
This event is free and open to the public.
