Led by Hannah Collisson join this intimate and open conversation to delve deeper into the introduction of Katherine McKittrick’s book Demonic Grounds: Black women and the cartography of struggle, a key point of research and influence for Bellantoni’s exhibition.

Katherine McKittrick is Professor and Canada Research Chair in Black Studies at Queens University, Ontario.  She researches in the areas of black studies, anti-colonial studies, and critical-creative methodologies. In a long overdue contribution to geography and social theory, her 2006 publication Demonic Grounds: Black women and the cartography of struggle offers a new and powerful interpretation of black women’s geographic thought.


This event will run from 11am-12.30pm in our Learning Space.
