Black Counter Cartographies
Tonya M. Foster and Eleeza Kelley will be in conversation as part of Columbia University's IRAAS Center's Black Counter-Geographies Series. Akin to the way that racial thinking marks and makes human difference, geographic knowledge and its modes of representation mark differences - above from below ground, land from water, here from there, mine from yours. The field of Black Geographies challenges and re-imagines modernity's production of space (and time), one that has been abstracted by the metrics of markets and politics. BLACK COUNTER CARTOGRAPHIES brings together diverse scholars, artists, and designers in a series of conversations exploring the spatial practices of Black life across the diaspora and how they construct "counter cartographies" of sociality, imagination and liberation. This event is happening in the virtual zones.
