Black life, an ongoing conversation

Conference Highlights, Panels and Plenary
Black Caucus

This panel focuses on the articles published in the Canadian Review of Sociology (November 2022) special issue which discussed Black life. Years after the murder of George Floyd in the United States, the significance of this special issue will be examined. The panelists will present theoretical, reflexive, and empirical papers in English and in French. These papers will discuss policy, pedagogy, policing, education, and immigration including analyses with a regional and a national scope. Furthermore, the authors will elaborate on the implications of their research and future directions of inquiry.
