"On Black Publics and Counterpublics: (Re) Situating the Queer and Feminist Work at the Margins of the Black Public Sphere"
About the Race Workshop:
With the conviction that intellectuals have a responsibility to help clarify discourses of racial difference, we convened this workshop to provide a forum for faculty and graduate students at the University of Chicago and area institutions to explore the problems of race and racial ideologies in the modern era. The issues we examine traverse academic and policy divisions as well as disciplinary and national boundaries.
In fact, the unique contribution of this workshop lies in the boundaries that it crosses — boundaries that often are inviolable in university settings. Through such boundary crossing, this workshop encourages conversation across both disciplinary and methodological paradigms on a regular basis. The workshop attracts students and faculty from the Social Sciences Division (especially History, Sociology, and Political Science), the Humanities (notably English, Cinema and Media Studies, and Philosophy), and the Professional Schools (Public Policy, Social Service, Law and Business). Likewise, presenters come from diverse divisions and departments in order to contribute to the multidisciplinary character of the workshop.
