VIDEO: Intellectual History of Black Women: An International Conference

Toward an Intellectual History of Black Women: An International Conference
April 28-30, 2011
Location: Columbia University’s Faculty House

“This conference features emerging work on black women’s contributions to black thought, political mobilization, creative work and gender theory. Scholarly Panels, Roundtables, and Keynote delivered by Professor Elizabeth Alexander will focus on black women as intellectuals across a broad geography including Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America, and Europe. Over a period of three days we aim to piece together a history of black women’s thought and culture that maps the distinctive concerns and historical forces that have shaped black women’s ideas and intellectual activities.

The conference is sponsored by Columbia University’s Center for the Critical Analysis of Social Difference (CCASD), Institute for Research in African American Studies (IRAAS), Institute for Research on Women and Gender (IRWAG), Institute for Social and Economic Research Policy (ISERP), Office of the Provost, and History Department.”
