Designing a flourishing future and researching with Black communities in Canada
Since the death of George Floyd in May 2020, there have been several calls for research and grant proposals explicitly addressing the causes and effects of racialization and anti-Black racism. Meanwhile, the scholarly literature pertaining specifically to research involving Black Canadians is burgeoning but limited. The overall goal of this interdisciplinary symposium is to consolidate and expand the state of knowledge regarding how social science and health scholars conduct research in ways that can help Black Canadian communities flourish.
The symposium will consist of two panels, followed by learning circles between the panelists and graduate students.
The panelists include Dr. Anthony Kwame Harrison, Dr. Alicia Boatswain-Kyte, Dr. Bukola Salami, Dr. Giselle Thompson, Dr. Tanya Matthews, Dr. Tya Collins, and others.
Lunch and snacks will be served.

This event is funded by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Connection Grant and LA&PS Research Events Fund.
