12:00PM 01:00PM The Advantage of Disadvantage: Legislative Behavior Following Costly Protest: University Event Topic: Lectures & MeetingsSchool: All Emory UniversityDepartment / Organization: James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and DifferenceMeeting Organizer/Sponsor: James Weldon Johnson InstituteSpeaker/Presenter: Dr. LaGina Gause - University of California - San DiegoEvent Open To: All (Public)Cost: FreeRegistration / R.S.V.P. link: https://emory.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_c1RNi2VISgC3EFkKjqaRSgContact Name: Rhonda PatrickContact Email: rhonda.patrick@emory.eduA growing literature demonstrates that protest influences legislators’ behavior. My book, tentatively titled The Advantage of Disadvantage, adds to this literature with a provocative claim: protests are most effective for disadvantaged populations. Following protest, lower resource groups (namely White, affluent, and well-organized groups) are more likely than their counterparts (racial and ethnic minorities, low-income communities, and those not mobilized by formal interest groups) to see their interests supported in legislation. This argument emerges from a formal model, an original survey of policymakers, data on protests reported in the New York Times from 1991 through 1995, and a new dataset of protests covered in 20 U.S. newspapers in 2012. This work provides new insights into inequalities in political representation by exposing circumstances in which legislative behavior favors the political participation of disadvantaged groups. + Zoom Event Campus Events

Department of,Creative Writing,English Department,French & Italian Department,Psychoanalytic Studies,Spanish and Portuguese,The Hightower FundMeeting Organizer/Sponsor: Natalie Catasús & Federica SignoriniSpeaker/Presenter: Kristyn Dykstra (with comments from Reina María Rodríguez)Event Open To: All (Public)Cost: FreeRegistration / R.S.V.P. link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hints-of-a-collective-literary-translation-and-two-afro-cuban-writers-tickets-144256301481Contact Name: Natalie CatasúsContact Email: n.catasus@emory.eduThis talk opens with a brief set of general observations about literary translation in the United States, including the low rate of representation for African diasporic writers. Dykstra then turns to two writers from Cuba, Ángel Escobar (1957-1997) and Soleida Ríos (1950 -), taking translation as a pathway to knowledge. While literary translation overlaps with creative writing and conventional scholarship, translation has been historically diminished as a site of knowledge within both of those arenas; however, it has been receiving more recognition and support in our current moment. Dykstra will consider how the practice of translation enabled insights into the writings of these two poets, known for their challenging work. Stories shared by Ríos about their affinities will become part of the discussion, providing leads for the perception of collective issues. Dykstra will incorporate readings from poems by each author, for those listeners unfamiliar with their work. Cuban poet Reina María Rodríguez, long an advocate for writers in the Havana area, will participate to read the poems in Spanish and offer follow-up comments from her own perspective, and she will be available for the Q&A. The talk will be held primarily in English with live captioning and is open to the public. ***This event is part of "Comparative Literature Speaker Series x Reina María Rodríguez & Kristin Dykstra." This series is made possible thanks to our generous co-sponsors, including the Hightower Fund and the following departments and programs at Emory University: Department of Comparative Literature, Creative Writing Program, Department of English, Department of Spanish & Portuguese, Department of French & Italian, the Psychoanalytic Studies Program, and the Comparative Literature Seminar Series. + Online (Zoom) Campus Events
