  • Elemental Panel: Water // Anti-Colonal Methods Project

    Date: Oct 28th, 2017 3:00pm
    Venue: Fairmont Social Lounge at St. John's College

    Water is a provocation to engage with some of the most imaginative and affecting research into anti-colonial memory, new nodes of relation and material histories of the present with five thinkers, writers and artists whose work knits these critical themes. The Elemental Panels program assembles academics, artists, and activists whose contributions to critical racial, anticolonial, and feminist thought and practice draw from the signifying richness of the elements – air, water, fire, and earth. The hope is to create space for, and to support, conversations that spark the imagination and sustain all emergent and possible anticolonial practices.
