October 2022 Gender Matters Speaker Series

Gender Matters Speakers Series, Wed, Oct 26th, 12-1pm.

Robert Sutherland, Rm 202.


Philippe Néméh-Nombré will be presenting the talk:

"And there is reason to believe they are both lurking thereabout: Black Flight, Indigenous Land and Relational Imagination."


Philippe Néméh-Nombré is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Geography, Planning and Environment at Concordia University. His research focuses on Black radical and decolonial possibilities, critical methodologies and Black ecologies and poetics. He recently completed his PhD in Sociology at Université de Montréal, and is the author of Seize temps noirs pour apprendre à dire kuei (Mémoire d'encrier, 2022).


More about this talk: Informed by Saidiya Hartman’s critical fabulation, this talk follows Nemo and Cash, two fugitive slaves that we encounter in a fugitive slave advertisement published in the Gazette de Québec in 1779, as they escape on and with the Ndakinna, the ancestral territory of the w8banaki. By exceeding and negotiating the “constitutive limits of the archive” (Hartman, 2008: 44), Philippe suggests a series of insights into what could have been a Black fugitive ecology on the Ndakinna, with all its relations, and what such Black fugitive ecology can teach us as part of a place-specific Black radical tradition.
