Theme. Racial Geographies of Health and Wellness
This 3-day interdisciplinary collective laboratory (collaboratory) endeavors to bring together scholars, creatives, organizers, and activists working to highlight the importance of the incorporation of social justice into the medical sciences. The collaboratory serves as a space for conversation, exchange of ideas, workshopping ideas, designated writing time, community and collaboration building, as well as community care, networking, and capacity building.
The hope for this discipline is to be an inclusive one that addresses intersectional issues of race, gender and class. We also hope to demonstrate the necessity for understanding how societal factors prevent healthcare from being accessible as a human right, not a privilege or commodity. Join us for our opening symposium on March 18, 2021, which will serve as an introduction to the May 14-16, 2021 BFHSS Collaboratory.
This first BFHSS Collaboratory will center on the theme of Racial Geographies of Health and Wellness. We ask that submissions, particularly workshop submissions, be related to the theme.
General Call for participation in the collaboratory is now closed. For those who attended the BFHSS Symposium, we have opened up a call for lightning talks here. In the spirit of collectivity, collaboration, and shared liberation, we ask that all collaboratory attendees apply to participate. The space will not be open to those wishing to observe only.
