Our first Gender Matters event this Winter 2024 Term will be a talk with Rose Ndengue on:


Wed, Feb 28 at 12pm on Main Campus, Queen's University

Cameroonian scholar-activist, Rose Ndengue is a historian socio-politician who defines herself as a black feminist from the transatlantic space, straddling Africa, Europe and the Americas.

She is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Glendon, York University, where she is developing a teaching program in African Studies centering on black feminist perspectives, from postcolonial and decolonial standpoints.

Her research focuses on gender and politics in Africa and the black diasporas, in colonial and post-colonial contexts, with a particular emphasis on African and Afrodescendant women's mobilizations in Cameroonian and European contexts. Her work (which is disseminated in academic journals, the media and blogs) contributes to the mainstreaming of Black Feminist Studies, from a pluridisciplinary and transnational perspective.

This is an in-person event: location details will be sent to those who register.
