Featuring K. Melchor Quick Hall, Resident Scholar, Women's Studies Research Center, Brandeis University
In this interactive lecture, Hall aims to explore what a Transnational Black Feminist (TBF) framework has to offer peace studies. She will guide audience members in a discussion about the TBF guiding principles of intersectionality, scholar-activism, solidarity, attention to borders/boundaries, and radically transparent positionality.
