Planet Deep South Colloquium: Speculative Cultural Production and Africanisms in the American Black South
December 1st, 2015 by fannielou
The Fannie Lou Hamer Institute @ COFO and The Institute for Social Justice and Race in conjunction with Astro Blackness present
2016 Planet Deep South Colloquium: Speculative Cultural Production and Africanisms in the American Black South.
Planet Deep South is an interdisciplinary colloquium open to all scholars, artists, and students that explore the intellectual and creative expression of African people through a series of panel discussions designed to inspire the inquiry of southern Black cultural production through a historical and speculative lens. Through an Afro-futuristic outlook, thinkers, writers, musicians and artists envision a Pan African world that is diverse yet specific; imagined, yet real, grounded yet unlimited, extending beyond region, space, and time.
This event will take place on the campus of Jackson State University, February 24th – February 26, 2016. For more information, please visit: http://www.jsums.edu/hamerinstitute/planet-deep-south/
