GLOBAL SOUTH WORKING GROUP PUBLIC ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION
In partnership with EAHR (Ethnocultural Art Histories Research Group) and the Department of Art History at Concordia University
Organized by the Global South Working Group in partnership with the Ethnocultural Art Histories Research (EAHR). The Global South Working Group is a research group founded in 2020 that examines the colonial and colonizing implications of the designation “Global South’’ for the transnational study of art history. This event was made possible with the collaboration of Projeto Afro, the Concordia Art History Graduate Students’ Association, the Interuniversity PhD Program in Art History, and the Department of Art History at Concordia University. The Global South Working Group is supported by the Concordia University Research Chair in Ethnocultural Art Histories.
We are excited to invite you to the latest virtual EAHR event: a finissage party for the past few virtual exhibitions that EAHR has organized, including the Instagram (@eahrconcordia) exhibition HEAR US NOW! and our contribution to ISEA 2020: (pre)existing conditions.
The event will be this Friday December 11th, 2:00-4:00 pm over Zoom.
Each of the artists involved in the exhibitions will introduce themselves, there will be some performances, and we will have break-out room discussions. We would like for each person to move freely between break-out rooms in order to converse on the topics they prefer and to meet a variety of people. We thought that our exhibitions were lacking networking and social opportunities between artists, curators and audience members and hope that this event will fill that need.

EAHR’s Instagram Exhibition titled HEAR US NOW! Is coming to a close, after exhibiting 20 wonderful artists. Dr. Alice Ming Wai Jim, EAHR Faculty Advisor and member of the Artistic Committee for ISEA 2020 (Intersociety of Electronic Arts) has invited EAHR to curate a selection of new media artworks from the summer Instagram project that resonate with ISEA’s theme this year, which is “Why Sentience.” ISEA is a major international symposium and festival on technology and new media art that is taking place as a hybrid event online and in Montreal this week October 13th through 18th!
The selection of 7 of these artists are being represented under ISEA2020’s collaborative projects: (pre)existing conditions. Find the selected work on the Instagram hashtag: #EAHR_ISEA2020

THERE/THEN, HERE/NOW: BLACK WOMEN'S HAIR AND DRESS IN
THE FRENCH EMPIRE
BY DR. JOANA JOACHIM
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 7TH, 6:00 PM - 7:00PM
Joana Joachim earned her PhD in the department of Art History and Communication Studies and at the Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies at McGill University working under the supervision of Dr. Charmaine A. Nelson. Her research interests include Black feminist art histories, Black Canadian studies and Canadian slavery studies. Dr. Joachim’s SSHRC-funded doctoral work, There/Then, Here/Now: Black Women’s Hair and Dress in the French Empire, examines the visual culture of Black women’s hair and dress in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, investigating practices of self-preservation and self-care through the lens of creolization. She has been appointed as a McGill Provostial Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Institutional Histories, Slavery and Colonialism beginning in the Fall of 2020 and she currently teaches a course on race and art in Canada in the department of art history at McGill.
Dr. Joachim's talk is presented as part of EAHRx10 Alumni, a special series of events in 2020-2021 celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Ethnocultural Art Histories Research Group. EAHRx10 Alumni seeks to highlight the resilience and ongoing labour of care practiced by racialized people in academia as well as reflect on the significant scholarly contributions and creative communities initiatives such as EAHR generate in the realm of arts and culture that reach beyond the university.
Presented by EAHRX10 Alumni: Adrienne Johnson, Geneviève Wallen, Rajee Jeji Shergill, and Tamara Harkness

FKRG X RAJNI SHAH ~ EXHAUSTION AND SOLIDARITY (ONLINE SESSION)
What does it mean to come together as exhausted ones?
How does exhaustion already sit in our bodies as BIPOC activists?
What are the relationships between resistance, exhaustion, and structural oppression?
This workshop-gathering is inspired by Akwugo Emejulu & Leah Bassel’s recent article, ‘The politics of exhaustion’ which proposes, among other things, the notion of ‘structural exhaustion’. Rather than simply discussing these themes, Rajni invites those who are exhausted to come together and experience solidarity, respite, and reflection. There is no required reading for the session, and you will be welcome to participate in any way you need, including remaining camera-off if this is most comfortable for you. Rajni will share the article that inspired the session with everyone after we meet.
In order to create a safer space, Rajni has requested that this online gathering is restricted to people who identify as BIPOC* (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour).
Please register in advance so that we can send you details nearer to the time. The form to register is here: https://forms.gle/QDVEi5mgHtonZtt57
* These terms can feel clumsy, but are helpful in the work of decentering whiteness. If you self-identify as BIPOC you are welcome here, no questions asked.
