Join Dr. Regina Marchi, artist Verónica Gaona, and Dr. Michael Anthony Turcios for an energizing conversation on how Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) has transcended into the U.S. and global imaginary from its Indigenous origins in the Americas. The speakers will discuss the ritual’s influence and relevance to Latinx transnational affinities and intimacies; social justice solidarity around immigration rights, Black Lives Matter, gun reform, and gender liberation; and nuanced celebrations that commemorate the departed through art, music, moving images, and performance.
