The Black Studies at Concordia Collective is pleased to announce their second annual conference. This year, we invite you to think with us about the sense of movement, transformation, and possibility that is intrinsically found within Black studies. We are inspired by the multiplicity of symbolic meanings that Black as an identity and a political praxis can hold, and how identity is created and translated across different contexts and scales. This year we embody Black Studies by celebrating Black art and Knowledge through a series of talks, workshops, a keynote and a performative arts showcase. This year's conference seeks to create space to think collectively about how Black experiences that move across borders, within and beyond national borders, disciplinary borders, cultural and linguistic borders, the borders constituted by assigned gender identities, the borders that mark the inside and outside of prison walls, the borders that mark the divide between punishment and accountability, and the borders between past, present, and future. We are looking forward to Living Black Studies with you.
