The History of Black Girlhood Network is a loose collective of scholars researching the experience of black girls across continents.
“UVA supports research addressing the lives and experiences of women and girls of color because we know that making this research available, present and visible changes the academic landscape.”
The Global History of Black Girlhood Conference will gather an interdisciplinary network of scholars to frame the emerging field of black girl history.
“We’ve now identified a national problem: what’s happening to women and girls of color. UVA will be one of the initial signing institutions, having pledged well in excess of $1 million over the next five years devoted to research on women and girls of color. In fact, we already do an enormous amount in this area.”
