Kanner Forum: Mary Pat Brady
Join UCLA English for a conversation featuring Mary Pat Brady, Professor of Latinx Studies and Children’s Literature at Cornell University and author of Scales of Captivity: Racial Capitalism and the Latinx Child. Professor Brady will be in conversation with Marissa López, Associate Graduate Dean and Professor of English and Chicana/o Studies at UCLA.
Register for this event here.
Professors Brady and López will discuss critical issues raised by Scales of Captivity including how the racialized conception of the child serves as a foundation for carceral logics. They will explore the aesthetics of “scale” and its relationship to multiple racializing systems, and talk about how the figure of the captive child within Latinx literature offers methods for undoing the violence that scale enables.
This event is co-sponsored by UCLA’s César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o and Central American Studies.
