BLACK WOMEN AND RESEARCH FROM USA AND THE CARIBBEAN: OUR PARADIGMS OF PREFERENCE

This seminar is designed to create a rapport among Black women scholars, primarily in the Humanities and Social Sciences, who are teaching and research faculty at the University of Tennessee. Its aim is to build relationships, construct a community (or multiple communities), encourage collaborations, and learn more about our colleagues. This seminar seeks to understand what drives us as scholars, how we design or create our research, and what are the theoretical paths and paradigms that best define or guide our trajectories (publications) as researchers. Themes and descriptions of presentations proposed by participants include: Self-Discovery and Black Female Identity; Black Feminist Literary Criticism Within a Historical Perspective; Intellectual Autonomy, Creating Our Own Paradigms of Historiography and Literary Configuration; Geographic Agency and the Urban Space; and Memory, Re-memory, and National Identity Formation.
