Engaged Scholarship: Struggles and Possibilities of Black Studies @ 305 Founders College (Founders Senior Common Room)
Oct 19 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

While recent developments at York University and other institutions — which respond to students’ advocacy for more diverse curricula — are legitimate cause for celebration, doing engaged scholarship connected to the community, still remains difficult work. In a growing climate of anti-Black racism, anti- immigration and xenophobic policies around the world, universities need to produce scholarship that these initiatives generate that can help communities, locally and internationally and respond effectively to these concerns. The themes of struggle and possibilities will be explored on three panels:

PANEL I: 9:30am
Making the Invisible, Visible: Black Womyn’s Experiences in the Academy
PANEL II: 11:30am
“Doing Research With and For the Community”: Tensions and Conflicts
PANEL III: 2:30pm
