The international Afroeuropeans Conference Brussels 2022 aims to consider how Afroeuropean communities are shaped by the intersections of ‘race’ and ethnicity with other markers of identification (e.g. gender, class, sexuality, ability, age, citizenship status, language…) and how these intersections create new alignments and opportunities. Informed by intersectionality theory’s rejection of unidimensional perspectives in activism, policy and research, the conference explores how diverse processes of privileging and discrimination interact, making for complex and dynamic experiences of what it means to be Afroeuropean. Of particular interest are the multiple ways in which Afroeuropeans challenge dominant modes of representation and knowledge production, for instance by claiming space and citizenship, altering taken-for-granted modes of knowing and organizing, and presenting their experiences and perspectives as part and parcel of European society and identity.

 

Hosted at VUB, the conference is co-organised by the Africa Platform of Ghent University Association (GAP), the Brussels Centre for Urban Studies (BCUS), the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) and, at VUB, the Brussels Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Migration and Minorities (BIRMM), the Research Centre Gender, Diversity and Intersectionality (RHEA) and the Centre for Literary and Intermedial Crossings (CLIC) in collaboration with a variety of other institutions in Belgium.

 

The conference is organised along different streams around the topic of “Intersectional Challenges in Afroeuropean Communities”. Please check the website for the full programme.

The 3 keynote speakers are:
- Kehinde Andrews (Professor of Black Studies, Birmingham City University)
- Olivette Otele (Professor of History of Slavery and Memory of Enslavement, University of Bristol)
- Mireille Tsheusi-Robert (President of BAMKO, Belgium)
