Per Caritatem

On Friday, Dec. 3, 2010 I presented a  lecture at the University of Dallas entitled, “Mos Def on Socially Constructed Subjectivities, Stigmatized Spaces, and the Mutability of ‘Blackness’.” The lecture was part of a  weekly series hosted by the philosophy department at the University of Dallas.

I have now uploaded the lecture in audio form, which you may access by clicking on the play button below:

Mos Def Lecture

It appears that the lecture gets cut short. Is there a way to hear your conclusions?

I’ve been a fan of Mos Def for quite a while, and was really appreciating your take on his work.


Hi Christian,

If it ends with me reading the last nine or so lines of the lyrics for “Mathematics”, then that is where the lecture ends. We cut out the Q&A section because it went on for quite some time and it was kind of “noisy.” If it cuts off before that, then I’ll try to upload a new version.

With all good wishes,
Cynthia
