Gender, Women’s, and Feminist Studies PhD programs often train doctoral students in intersectionality via the canonical work of Black Feminist and Womanist thinkers. Yet, we rarely wrestle with the relationship between Black Feminist Thought and GWFS as a field much less discuss how Black feminists/womanists navigate doctoral programs in GWFS (either as students or faculty members) that have perpetuated anti-Blackness. This roundtable explores the intertwining, fraught, and sometimes contentious relationship between Black Feminist Thought/Womanism and the PhD in Gender, Women, and Feminist Studies.
