Professor Haile received his PhD from Duquesne University. He will speak on Afro-Futurism in Aesthetics and the film Black Panther.

2018 is the fourth year that the ASA has sponsored aesthetics speakers at summer diversity institutes. ASA covers all costs for the speakers and is pleased to help support these important diversity programs. All ASA members were eligible to apply for these appointments. The speakers were selected by institute directors from recommendations made by a review committee of senior ASA members.
