Q Symposium 2022: Black. Queer. Love.

Symposium Dates: March 30 - April 1, 2022

This inaugural symposium explores black queer love in all its complexities, intricacies, and manifestations. What do each of these words mean? And what do they mean when we put them together? We ask scholars/artists/activists to explore these ideas from intersectional and/or transdisciplinary frames. Events include:

  • March 30: Book reading and signing with E. Patrick Johnson
  • March 31: Spotlight Panel with Dr. Jayme Canty, Da’Quan Saunders-McNear, & Dr. Dawn Johnson
  • April 1: Virtual presentation by Dr. Tracy Stonestreet
  • April 1: Virtual panel: "Boundless: Black Futurity & Worldmaking in the Age of Catastrophe"
