HISTORIES OF THE FUTUREAfro-Feminist Futures:
Intersectionality in Question

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?

The talks will conclude with a roundtable discussion featuring a panel of scholars at Stony Brook.
In the wake of the election of Donald Trump, a man endorsed by the KKK and white nationalists around the globe, this interdisciplinary panel examines connections between the past, present and future of racial oppression and white dominance. What can we learn about this historical moment by looking to past formations of white supremacy, anti-blackness and state violence against marginalized communities? Drawing from interconnected histories of racialization in the United States, the Caribbean, the Atlantic World and Africa, these papers explore the aftermath and afterlife of slavery and colonialism in contemporary society.
