• Café Conversations: Celebrating or misappropriating culture?

    Mar 21st, 2018
    6:00pm - 7:30pm
    Memphis Brooks Museum of Art | Free.

    After a brief tour of African-Print Fashion Now! with Chief Curator Marina Pacini, join anthropologists  Dr. Susan Kus, Rhodes College, and Dr. Victor Raharijaona, Chercheur Associé, Université de Fianaratsoa, Madagascar in a discussion about the term “cultural appropriation.”

    How does cultural appropriation differ from assimilation or cultural exchange? Is cultural appropriation an example of free expression, or is it a form of colonialism? What are the lines between cultural borrowing, cultural appropriation, and cultural appreciation?

    These scholars will help us navigate these complex questions of culture in a relaxed setting.
