"Literary Studies and Cultural Diplomacy:Teaching and Learning as a Fulbright Scholar in Panama"

Presenter: Dr. Trent Masiki

Date: Thursday, March 29, 2018

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Grove Hall Forum

 

~Dr. Masiki will discuss his experience as a Fulbright Scholar in Panama at the Universidad Autónoma de Chiriquí where he taught expository writing and U.S. literature. Arriving as an educator and ambassador of U.S. literature and culture, Dr. Maski learned many lessons from his Panamanian students and colleagues. 

Dr. Trent Masiki is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Africana Studies at Dickinson College. He received his Ph.D. in Afro-American Studies from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. He holds an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Emerson College-Boston, an M.A. in English from Texas A&M University-College Station, and a B.S. in Computer Science from Southern University-Baton Rouge. His current book project, The Afroethnic Impulse and Renewal, examines how and why Afro-Latino authors use African American narrative strategies and cultural tropes to write themselves into the archive of U.S. literary and cultural history. He examines the ways in which African American and Afro-Latino intercultural affinities and encounters are redefining what it means and has meant to be “black” in the U.S.
