Black Feminist Historical Research: An Ethic and a Practice, with Délice Mugabo and Melissa N. Shaw
Mar 27, 2023 — All day
The final in a series of Black History Month events organized by the Department of History at the University of Ottawa together with community partners Black History Ottawa and AfriCanadian Searchers.
Join us for a dialogue between two scholars on what it means to recover and explore Black history from a feminist perspective, considering how it shapes our relationship to the past and the present.
The event will feature Délice Mugabo, assistant professor, Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies, uOttawa, and Melissa N. Shaw, assistant professor, Department of History and Classical Studies, McGill University.
Dr. Mugabo is a Black feminist geographer. Her research areas are Black women's resistance in 18th century Quebec, Black radicalism in 1990s Montreal and anti-Black Islamophobia.
Dr. Shaw’s prize-winning research on Black Canadian / Black North American history highlights how activist women used grassroots, national, continental and global Black Diaspora networks to combat anti-Black racism and inculcate intraracial solidarity and Black pride in Ontario.
