Black and Brown Identity Collective (B²IC)

Graduate students rarely have intentional spaces where writing and identity are centered, discussed, and contested. If available, these spaces rarely advance our writing projects within an interdisciplinary community. The Black and Brown Identity Collective (B²IC) creates an intellectual community where students engage with the histories of Black, Indigenous and/or Latinx scholars to consider how they incorporate personal identities in their scholarship, while also allowing us to exercise our agency as scholars as we seek to do the same. Through B2IC, we  host writing sessions and colloquiums to prepare us for a career as public intellectuals, where writing for diverse audiences is integral.
