    This panel seeks to examine contemporary Francophone cultural productions (broadly defined from comics to novels and films) which provide a rich ground for imagining Blackness in the future. Is there a future after anti-Blackness? How do these cultural productions imagine collective liberation? Papers are invited to discuss joy and sorrow in science fiction, utopian and dystopian narratives grounded in Afrofuturism/Afropessimism.  A guaranteed session sponsored by LLC 20th-21st-Century French. Send 250-words abstracts to Johanna Montlouis-Gabriel at jmontlo@ncsu.edu by March 15th, 2023.
