Black Critical Thought Group: “Fugitive Negotiation” Workshop

Location: Virtual



6:00 pm

- 8:00 pm


Based on their innovative “Fugitive Negotiation” course at Harvard Law School, HLS faculty members Whitney Benns and Samuel Straus will lead students in an experiential workshop that brings Black critical thought to bear on the power dynamics that shape the practice of negotiation in educational institutions.

Attendees of this student-only workshop will engage the critical insights of Black scholars Savannah Shange, Katherine McKittrick, Fred Moten and Stephano Harney as they map the institutional contexts that frame their work and consider advanced negotiation strategies that can be used to expand possibility. Attendees are expected to come having read the Ch. 4 from Savannah Shange’s book Progressive Dystopia (attached).

NOTE: This virtual event will be capped at 40 attendees so interested students should RSVP right away.
