Electric Santería: Author Talk & Reading with Dr. Aisha M. Beliso-De Jesús

February was a very busy month for the WGSS Program.  We collaborated with numerous entities to bring exciting new scholarship to our UH community.  Electric Santería was no exception.

In collaboration with UH Hispanic Studies, we hosted Dr. Aisha M. Beliso-De Jesús from Harvard University who presented her new book and research on the transnational experience of Santería.  Beliso-De Jesús’ presentation provided keen insights in the study of African diaspora religious practices as well as a sophisticated example of transnational feminist scholarship.
