On May 11, 2013, I will be giving a short talk at University of California-Davis for the Annual Women of Color Conference, which is from 9am-5pm.

Location: Student Community Center; Session #4 – SCC Room E

Time: 12:00-12:50pm

Title: On [cyber]bullying and racist [micro] aggressions: turning your experiences of discursive violence into opportunities for research and activism

Abstract: I will be discussing the research and activism I did as a PhD student, which investigated whiteness and neoliberalism within vegan spaces. I will draw special attention to how I had to navigate the tremendous amount of direct hate as well as covert racist micro-aggressions that I experienced largely from white identified people. Most importantly, I will speak of how I turned these situations into research and activist opportunities. I will try to answer what I think it means to do this type of work as a critical race feminist and Black woman in a ‘post-racial’ USA.

If you are unable to attend this free conference, do not worry; I will be video recording it like I always do and then uploading it to my blog.
