Eschewing a monolithic conception of Black scholars and issues they face in the academy, this panel portrays the complexity and diversity of African Canadian scholars’ identity and identification, understanding Black Studies as strongly disciplinary in some cases and decidedly multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, indeed post-disciplinary in the work of others. Join Afua Cooper (Dalhousie University), Annette Henry (University of British Columbia), Tamari Kitossa (Brock University) and Handel Kashope Wright (University of British Columbia) as they discuss the nuances of Black identity and identification, Black Studies, issues faced by Black scholars in the Canadian academy and contributions to addressing equity.
