Please note the following event, and feel free to attend if you happen to be
in/near New York City:

The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) of the City University of New
York Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and "Queer" Colloquium Series

"Words, Not Whispering: A History of the Expression of Caribbean Women Who Love

Presented by Natasha Tinsley, assistant professor in the English Department at
the University of Minnesota; with respondent Yolanda Martinez-San Miguel,
associate professor of Romance Languages at the University of Pennsylvania.

This paper will be an expansion of Professor Tinsley's idea of three periods of
expression by Caribbean women who love women: 1) the submerged words of the
Middle Passage and slavery; 2) the whispered words of the late nineteenth/early
twentieth century; and 3) the woman-centered publications of the late
twentieth/early twenty-first century. Her interest lies in bringing together
both history of different relationship/community formations and their literary
(and other) expression.
