STUDYING EAST OF BYZANTIUM VII: IN CONVERSATION WITH ANTI-RACISM, PANDEMIC, AND SOCIAL INEQUALITY
Zsuzsanna Gulácsi, Northern Arizona University
Sergio La Porta, California State University, Fresno
A three-part workshop that intends to bring together doctoral students studying the Christian East to discuss how the events of 2020—from the intensified conservations about systemic racism and economic inequality stemming acts of police violence on Black men and women in the United States to the dramatic changes to life and work brought about by the coronavirus pandemic—have impacted their research with a diverse group of colleagues and senior specialists in the field. Participation is limited to 10 students. Those interested in attending should submit a C.V. and 200-word abstract no later than Tuesday, September 15, 2020.
