Description:

“Black Feminist Futures,” a two-day symposium that traces Black feminist theory and praxis in and beyond the academy, will fill an institutional void of Black feminist intellectual engagement and social networks at Northwestern. Centering intergenerational Black feminist dialogue as a critical intellectual and social force, sixteen leading scholars will participate; a few notables include: Scholar and social justice activist, Cathy Cohen, whose political work on U.S. social movements has helped to contour fundamental understandings of Black politics and Black queer women’s political activism; Kara Keeling, whose cultural work on the implications of Black women’s (in)visibility in the cinematic has been critical to rethinking the production of Black cultural politics and alternative forms of sociality.
