HISTORIES OF THE FUTUREAfro-Feminist Futures:
Intersectionality in Question
Wed., March 8, 2017 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm, 1008 Humanities
This event brings together experts in the social sciences and humanities to explore the future of intersectionality as well as contemporary research on Black and/or African women and girls in a variety of global contexts. We will address questions such as: How do race, gender and coloniality shape the political organizing, creative expression and self-understandings of Afro-descended women? What can Black Feminisms learn from African Feminisms and vice versa? How does global white supremacy and the rise of white national movements impact Black women’s well-being and belonging?
