Join SNID for a conversation with Dr. Katherine McKittrick, Dr. Kristin Moriah, and Renée Whittaker, who will discuss the Minor in Black Studies at Queen's, and the stakes of imagining the university as a site of Black liberation.


Katherine McKittrick is Professor of Gender Studies at Queen’s University. She is interested in black studies, anti-colonial studies, and the arts. She edited and contributed to the collection Sylvia Wynter: On Being Human as Praxis and wrote Demonic Grounds: Black Women and the Cartographies of Struggle and Dear Science and Other Stories. 


Kristin Moriah is an Assistant Professor of English at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Her forthcoming monograph, Dark Stars of the Evening, examines late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century African-American performance, including the circulation of performance within the black diaspora and its influence on the formation of national identity. Her research has been supported by fellowships from the Social Sciences and Research Council of Canada, the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia, and the Harry Ransom Center. 


Renée Whittaker is a PhD student in Cultural Studies at Queen's U. She teaches Special Topics in Sociology at Durham College. Currently she is working with an interdisciplinary team of Black graduate students in the newly formed Black Graduate Caucus.
