We hope you will be able to join us for our next Collaboratory in 2023. Stay tuned for more information and a call for submissions.


The first Black Feminist Health Science Studies Symposium will be an engaging, informative introduction to the field and collective that claim the name. Register today!

This first BFHSS Collaboratory will center on the theme of Racial Geographies of Health and Wellness. By centering on this theme, we hope to draw works that are putting BFHSS, geographies, and space in conversation together. We are looking for works exploring how the practices and modes of knowledge production of varying branches of the sciences (health, science, and medicine) continue to shape global, national, local, natural, cultural, and racial landscapes and vice versa.
