Life. Living. Alive.
Convener: Jennifer C. Nash
The Black Feminist Theory Summer Institute focuses on interdisciplinary Black feminist scholarship that attends to Black life and living. The Department invites applications from graduate students (MA, MFA, and/or PhD-track) for a five-day Black Feminist Theory Summer Institute. Graduate students have the opportunity to engage closely with prominent scholars. Students are also invited to share their scholarly work in fifteen-minute presentations. Keeping with the theme of sustaining life, we work to produce a cross-institution community of scholars working in the field of Black feminist theory.
