About the speaker
Department chair and associate professor of Caribbean and film studies at Rice University, Luis Duno-Gottberg taught at Universidad Simón Bolivar in Caracas, and at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, where he was director of Caribbean and Latin American studies. He specializes in 19th- and 20th-century Caribbean culture, with emphasis on race, ethnicity, politics, and violence. His current research, Dangerous People: Hegemony, Representation, and Culture in Contemporary Venezuela, explores the relationship between popular mobilization, radical politics, and culture. He is completing a translation and annotated edition of Estela (1853), the first Haitian novel.
