The Launch of the New Certificate in Black Canadian Studies
Join Professors Funké Aladejebi, Seika Boye, and Lance McCready, and moderator Dr. Audrey Hudson for the launch of the Certificate in Black Canadian Studies and a discussion of the importance and vitality of Black Canadian Studies and Black Studies on U of T’s tri-campus.
Hosted by University College’s Canadian Studies Program, this Certificate supports interdisciplinary study and research on the social construction of race in Canada, with a focus on Black Canada and Black Canadians. The Certificate draws on courses from across Arts & Science that attend to past and present contributions by individuals and communities; counter-narratives and forms of resistance against anti-Black racism; and empowerment enacted by Black Canadians. The Certificate also supports comparative, transnational, and diasporic perspectives, situating Canada within the Black Atlantic so as to engage in diverse conversations of race, belonging and identity-formation across the diaspora.
Participants are invited to share questions in advance of the event.
