The Center for South Asian Studies and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies present a virtual roundtable on Vice President Kamala Harris and the boundaries of identity, politics, and belonging across South Asia, the United States, and the Caribbean.

Kamala Harris inhabits multiple identities that are often seen as separate or non-legible within the same frame (South Asian/South Asian American, Black, Caribbean). What does her Vice Presidency mean vis-a-vis these identity categories? How does Kamala Harris help bridge South Asia and the Caribbean, making visible connections that evade our commonplace understandings of people and places? This event seeks to discuss these themes as well as how we understand Kamala Harris as an international and domestic figure and how international and domestic politics and concerns are deeply intertwined.
