Submit Proposals here: The conference encourages proposals related to topics on Black people and the “environment,” broadly defined and throughout time, in order to explore the politics of race, gender, ethnicity, class, age, ability, immigration status, and nation, as far as their intersections with their environments and whether Black people live their lives as (under)privileged, vulnerable, empowered, or resilient, in the Black Diaspora. Being that the conference is in Chicago, Illinois, where there exists a vibrant Black community life, the conference location offers yet another meaningful context for excavating race and the environment for Black lives.  The location also renders important a space for engaging Black community life in critical-analytical, conference exchanges.
