The Feminist and Queer Diaspora Studies working group aims to create a supportive and collaborative pedagogical space to engage with feminist and queer approaches to diaspora studies and diasporic organizing. Join us for our second reading group on Diaspora Space/Mappings & Black Geographies.

We will be discussing three texts:
