About the Movie: Rating: PG-13 (for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, thematic elements, and some disturbing images) Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future of the planet.

In connection with the new program in Black Studies, the Departments of Ethnic Studies, History, Political Science, Women’s and Gender Studies are collaborating with the College of Arts and Sciences and the Office of Equity and Inclusion to host a “mini-conference” focused on Black intellectual history to be held on October 21, 2017. Themes for the workshop will include: Intellectual Histories of Slavery’s Sexualities; Abolitionism and Intellectual History; Black Internationalism; and Black Power, Politics, and Protest. The program is based on a forthcoming edited collection sponsored by the African American Intellectual History Society (AAIHS). Founded in 2014, the AAIHS is a scholarly organization designed to foster dialogue about researching, writing, and teaching Black thought and culture. It is open to scholars in all disciplines, including but not limited to African American history, literature, philosophy, art, dance, and film.
The conference will have a “workshop” format, with discussions of pre-circulated papers that represent the latest scholarship in the field. Sessions will be held in the EMU, beginning at 9:00am on Saturday, October 21 and will continue throughout the day until 6:00pm. The event will target a mix of senior scholars, such as Davarian Baldwin, Amrita Myers, and Quito Swan, alongside newly emerging scholars who will receive valuable feedback on their work. The conference is open to the entire University community. To RSVP, please register at this link.
For more information, or to get copies of the pre-circulated papers, please contact Professor Leslie Alexander at firstname.lastname@example.org
