An Environment for Black Feminism: History, Theory Aesthetics

Artist talks and conversation with Deborah Jack and Dominique White.

Keynote Lecture from J.T. Roane titled The Grounded Prophet: On June Jordan’s Spatial and Ecological Thought.

This workshop brings together historians of art and culture, theorists, and artists who engage the environment from a Black Feminist perspective to find new connections outside of disciplinary silos, across geographic contexts, and in multiple modes of knowledge production. To cultivate the ground of Ecocritical Black Feminism is to attend to an ethical and moral imperative that undams the separation of humans from environmental liberation. This workshop seeks to foster discussions around a range of approaches to the past, present, and future of Ecocritical Black Feminism from the interwoven perspectives of history, theory, and artistic practice.
