Black Migration Symposium
Black Migration Symposium seeks to examine from interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives a range of issues pertaining to the challenges, possibilities, and tensions that have emerged from the migration and settlement of Black/black people—self-identified and identified as such—in varying sites and contexts in Africa and the African diaspora, in particular the Americas, the Caribbean, and Europe.
Our aim is not simply to explore Black migration, but also to interrogate the very questions, concepts, and experiences that have informed this ever-evolving process relative to the arts (broadly understood), identity matters, intergroup relations, politics, policies, and race as well as trends in research and pedagogy.
Admission to the Symposium is FREE and open to the public.
