Speaking/Writing/Being: Centering Black Women’s Intellectual Production

Date / Time

February 26, 2021

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Speaking/Writing/Being: Centering Black Women’s Intellectual Production is a new program being developed by the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center to create a supportive space for Black women graduate students to

  • share their ideas and projects,
  • engage in interdisciplinary conversations, and
  • build relationships with other Black women students and faculty across UIC.

In this first iteration, we’ll be hosting a special edition of WLRC’s signature Feminisms Lunch Lectures series featuring UIC PhD students Sekordri Ojo (History), Krystal Madden (Learning Sciences), and Priscila Pereira (Mathematics & Science Education). After individual short presentations of their work, our guest speakers will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Jaira Harrington (Black Studies) about what it has been like to be a Black woman graduate student in their respective fields during these unexpected times.

Speaking/Writing/Being is a celebration of Black women’s intellectual traditions and experiences in diverse areas of knowledge. We look forward to seeing you there!
