The Desert Futures Collective is a growing network of scholars, activists, and artists whose shared goal is to chart new paradigms for interdisciplinary humanities scholarship through a comparative focus on the poetics and politics of desert spaces. The “Desert Futures : Sahara” symposium and workshop is scheduled to take place in person at Yale University from April 28 to May 1, 2022. This interdisciplinary, multi-day event will bring together a distinguished group of artists and scholars from diverse disciplinary and linguistic backgrounds to participate in conversations focused on the poetics and politics of Saharan spaces in particular. The conference includes a public opening symposium, film screenings and art exhibitions, a graduate student colloquium, and a scholarly workshop. Location: Humanities Quadrangle
