His two essays -- "Missing Chapters in Afro-Medievalism, or What the Bookstore Hid" and "Power and Beauty: The Pleasures and Dangers of Blackness in Medieval and Renaissance Representations" -- are available for circulation. A light lunch will be served. The seminar will be held in Rome Hall 771 (801 22nd St. NW).
Please RSVP to me [firstname.lastname@example.org] if you wish to attend. I have listed several of his publications below. Much more information about Professor Keita may be found at his Villanova homepage.
We hope to see you on the 11th!
