This panel is part of the two-day CRC Symposium, Racial Reckonings & the Future of the Humanities, April 28-29, 2021. The term “reckoning” denotes acts of calculation, estimation and debts paid.

It also refers to “ideas, opinions and judgments” as in the phrase, “I reckon.” To what extent, and how, might we imagine a racial reckoning via new work in arts and humanities?
