“The time has come for us to reimagine everything….We have to reimagine ourselves.” –Grace Lee Boggs
Inspired by the words of revolutionary Grace Lee Boggs, this daylong event will be a transformative interdisciplinary conversation between emerging dynamic scholars in the fields of Gender and Sexuality Studies, American Studies, Asian American Studies, and African American Studies. Speakers will provide critical discussion about subjects such as black feminist sexual politics, surveillance studies, immigration, the war on terror, HIV/AIDS and black communities, Chicana feminist praxis and digital humanities, queer of color performance art and culture, and interrogations of the human and art that speak to the important imaginative work Boggs understood as vital to social justice, activism, and revolution.
The symposium is being organized by L.H. Stallings, Associate Professor of Women's Studies, University of Maryland. For more information, contact L.H. Stallings at firstname.lastname@example.org
