Online Workshop

The Archive Revisited: Black Feminist Internationalism and Eurasian Knowledge Production

The Archive Revisited focuses on reimagining the legacies of Black feminist internationalism in Soviet Eurasia, i.e., East Europe and Central Asia. Workshop participants reflect on the meaning and value, including the limitations and possibilities, of past relationships, encounters, and intellectual exchanges. The workshop approaches the archive as a site of exploration and location of creative invention and critical knowledge production. After the workshop, participants’ contributions will be assembled into a digital gazette.
