Lecture: "On the Blackness of Flamenco" by Dr. Meira Goldberg (Fashion Institute of New York)

February 27, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Lecture: "On the Blackness of Flamenco" by Dr. Meira Goldberg (Fashion Institute of New York) Dr. Goldberg asks: How is the politics of Blackness have figured in the flamenco dancing body? What does flamenco dance tell us about the construction of race in the Atlantic world? In her book, Sonidos Negros, she traces how, in the span between 1492 and 1933, the vanquished Moor became Black, and how this figure, once transfigured in a stereotyped Gitano or Gypsy, paradoxically came to represent Spain itself.
