Speaker Series

Voices in Resistance

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Loyola University Chicago is organizing the 2021-2022 speaker series, which will address how writers, artists, and scholars across the globe have made use of the theme of voice as an expression of dissent and resistance against political, social, and/or personal oppression. While resistance is generally conceived as a form of political and collective practice, the meaning of the term may extend to individual and personal practices understood in terms of endurance, resilience, and self-preservation. Speakers will draw on storytelling, poetic language, music, oral history, dialogue, and other artistic and non-artistic forms of expression.
