The Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, the Department for Educational Studies, and the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies present:
Anti-Colonial Experiments in Entangled Socialities
May 26, 1:30-5pm
Jack Bell Building
Room 028, 2080 West Mall
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP’s are not required to attend, only encouraged.
This event brings together an inter-disciplinary group of scholars, activists, artists, and curators who will interact with each other and with the audience in a conversation ‘without scripts’ in three performative acts focusing on the joys and anxieties of holding spaces for new socialities with the potential to enable anti-colonial futures, beyond the state and global capital.
Interactions will address the following key questions:
How can we experience… ethics with/out the modern subject? politics with/out the nation-state? education with/out modern institutions? survivance with/out capitalism? imagination with/out the intellect? being with/out separability?
With international & local guests:
Kyle T. Mays
Vanessa de Oliveira Andreotti
Denise Ferreira da Silva
This event is supported by the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Justice (GRSJ), the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies (PWI) and the Department for Educational Studies (EDST) at UBC.
