The Queer Of Color Analysis in Education Research Institute (QOCAERI)’s primary goal is to bring together researchers whose substantive knowledge, theoretical insight, and methodological expertise can be assembled in ways that build upon and reach beyond familiar modes of thinking concerning conundrums or problems related to LGBTQI+ issues in formal, non-formal and informal education. In this 1.5-hour webinar six BIPOC scholars based in the United States who mobilize queer of colour analysis and critique in their work will discuss how they are re-imagining and redefining education in times of COVID and anti-Blackness.

Panel 1 (5:40-6:15pm): Cindy Cruz, Ed Brockenbrough and Roland Coloma will consider how trauma, stigma, violence and mourning haunt our everyday lives, including the streets, schools and transnational networks that are the sites of education.

Panel 2 (6:20-6:55pm): Steve Mobley Jr., Kia Darling Hammond and Vijay Kanagala will highlight how queer of colour communities are forging new ways of thinking and enacting healing, resilience, resistance and thriving in the midst of unprecedent pandemic- and anti-Black racism-related death.

Event organized by CSUS Bissell-Heyd Research Fellow (2019-2020), Prof. Lance McCready
