Join us for the first-ever BGSA virtual research conference at the University of Toronto on May 11, 1-4pm. Working in partnership with Hart House, this conference will serve as an open forum for Black graduate students to share their research with Black graduate students and professors from universities across the globe. This year's theme is "Celebrating Blackadamia" and will center around the work, experiences and contributions of Black students and academics. We are offering an open invitation to all Black students, staff and faculty, community members and also non-Black allies to take the time and opportunity to meet with current and former Black students from various walks of life and learn about the experiences of Black academics in the field. This year's event programming will offer: conference presentations and a panel discussion. 

We will be accepting abstract or poster submissions from all academic fields to encourage participation. We encourage students to apply regardless if they are at the proposal stage or have completed their research projects. The deadline to submit abstracts or poster submissions is April 30th, 2021. Applicants with accepted abstract and oral submissions will be notified on an ongoing basis until May 4th, 2021.
