The Politics of Belonging
In this presentation, Dr. Boulou Ebanda de B'béri argues that the identity of people of Québec is profoundly racialized, at least through the political discourse of “representation.” The presentation uses a series of advertisements that ran on Québec’s French and English television channels between 2000-2005 to illustrate the ways in which the racial identity of Black people is policed in Québec.
Hosted by the Black Studies Group and the Intersectionality Research Hub. Free and open to the public.
