From a departmental email:
During her two days on the UNL campus, Professor PÃ©rez will meet with groups of faculty and guest lecture in classes. She will also give a public talk on Thursday September 29th in the City Campus Union on the topic of â€œDecolonizing the University for Ethnic Studiesâ€. This event will begin with an informal reception and book display at 3 p.m., followed by the formal talk at 3:30 p.m. We recognize that you may be too busy to attend this event, but are asking that you encourage attendance at Dr. PÃ©rezâ€™s talk by informing administrators, faculty, staff, and students in your units of this event.
Dr. PÃ©rezâ€™s visit is being organized by Amelia Montes, who submitted a grant to the Convocations Committee and obtained co-sponsorship from multiple departments and programs. The Institute for Ethnic Studies [lol — acronym is UNLies — 🙂 — tdaxp] is one of the units co-sponsoring Professor PÃ©rezâ€™s visit. Please contact either of us for more information about this event.
Thank you for help in publicizing this important event.
