Irvine -- Cutural critic Paul Gilroy, recently on the UCI campus to deliver a series of Wellek Library Lectures, enages in a provocative conversation about "Race and Beyond" with Asian American Studies Assistant Prof. Glen Mimura and Subversity show host Dan Tsang this Friday, May 24, 2002, from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, California. The radio program is also web-cast live at the same time via

Gilroy, a sociology and African American studies profesor from Yale, is a key figure in cultural studies. He is the author of numerous books, including his latest, "Against Race: Imagining Political Culture Beyond the Color Line". Earlier works include: "There Ain't No Black In The Union Jack", "Small Acts: Thoughts On The Politics of Black Cultures", and "The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double Consciousness." He is also a DJ and music writer, contributing to such publications as New Statesman and Sight and Sound. He also has a longstanding collaboration with filmmaker Isaac Julien.

Gilroy elaborates on his thought-provoking Wellek Library Lectures ("Elements of Post-Colonial Melancholia"), discussing race, racism, racialism and UC Regent (and anti-race data collection initiative's) Ward Connerly as well as 9/11. He suggests that just feeling good about one's community is not enough; there has to be a political commitment as well.

The show will be archived on the Subversity RealAudio Archive page AFTER the Web-cast: Click on Latest Archived Show.
