Berkeley Black Geographies Symposium: The Black Geographic
March 12-13th, 2020
Banatau Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall, UC Berkeley
Rooted in decades of critical and radical Black thought and political engagement, Black Geographies’ recent rate and breadth of growth has advanced and inspired multiple themes,
concepts, and interventions concerning the spatial relations of Blackness that span the range from the poetics to the politics of Blackness.
In addition to celebrating these developments, this symposium will seek to deepen and define the conceptual and scholarly implications of the Black geographic framework that stand at the core of these advancements.
In doing so, the symposium hosts presentations that reflect Black Geographies’ commitments to the material, political-economic, poetic, feminist, queer, and global arrangements of the Black experience through geographically grounded scholarship.
