Bailey Presents Paper in Paris

French graduate student Tiffany Bailey recently presented a paper at a conference on Black Studies in Paris. She tells us:

“I participated in the “Black Studies x French Studies” Colloquium in Paris hosted by the AfroFrancospheres Project at Columbia University in partnership with the inter-university research, educational, and public programming initiative, BlackFranceNoire. For the workshop series, I presented my paper on the weaponization of the word “pute” (whore) against Black girls in contemporary French film and literature. Throughout the colloquium, I heard from other graduate students, scholars, and authors about their work in interdisciplinary Black French Studies.”
