Lest Silence be Destructive: A Conference on Latina/x Feminisms—Past, Present, & Future has been canceled.

In conjunction, Envisioning Futurity: The Aesthetics of Chicana Resistance and Resilience, an installation celebrating Chicana/x political visual culture as it emerged alongside the Chicana/o movement of the 1980s and ’90s, is on view in the Johnson’s Opatrny Gallery (through Sunday, June 7), organized by Gilda Posada, PhD student in Cornell’s Department of the History of Art and Visual Studies.


The conference is inspired by the work of Helena María Viramontes, Goldwin Smith Professor of English and director of creative writing at Cornell.

A welcome reception for the conference will take place before and after this event in the Hirsch Lecture Lobby from 4:00 to 7:00 PM.

This event is presented by Cornell's Department of English/Creative Writing Program.
