The Women's Resource Center Presents
|4th Annual Genocide Research Symposium|
Revisiting and Rethinking Genocide and Resistance in Africa and the Diaspora
DATE: Tuesday, November 1, 2016
\When we think of genocide in Africa and the diaspora, we often ignore how genocide is interconnected with global forces in our social and political environment. For this year’s day-long symposium, we will revisit and rethink our understanding of genocide and resistance in Africa and the African diaspora in an effort to shed light on broader, interconnected, and global implications of genocide. We will consider how current activist movements can work to increase visibility and validate the community’s need for tangible, transformative change. TOPICS:
