In the wake of the movement for racial justice and the defense of black lives, it is important to contextualize conflicts involving race, status and power, including around the use of the “n-word,” and to consider how they are framed differently across national contexts with varying historical legacies, immigration regimes, and transnational influences. This panel focuses on the Canadian and Quebec cases against the backdrop of American and European experiences.
