Black Arts International Conference
Black Arts International: Temporalities and Territories is the third of the initial three conferences proposed by the Black Arts Initiative—the first focused on Chicago, and the second focused on the United States. This conference will focus on art and scholarship of the black diaspora around the world. The key themes of the conference engage notions of time, space and place and the ways in which black art plays a pivotal role in and has been influenced by historical epochs such as colonialism and the transatlantic slave trade, modernity and post-modernity, industrialization and globalization; and, geopolitical contexts where art has reflected the conditions of a specific place.
