In This Moment: Thoughts on Anti-Racism, Social Justice, Decoloniality and Radical CollectivitiesExport this event to calendar

Monday, March 23, 2015 — 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM EDT

Rinaldo WalcottThe Drama and Speech Communication Speakers Series presents invited lecturer Professor Rinaldo Walcott from the Department of Social Justice Education, and Director of the Women and Gender Studies Institute, both at the University of Toronto.

In This Moment: Thoughts on Anti-Racism, Social Justice, Decoloniality and Radical Collectivities will address the ways in which debates concerning the decolonial project and social justice presently occupy a certain unthoughtfulness that needs to be thought. Professor Walcott places both decoloniality and social justice in conversation with the aim of generating a call for thinking a radical collective imaginary.

This talk will be of value to UWaterloo faculty, staff and students as well as members of the community with an interest in social justice. 

The lecture will be about 45 minutes followed by Q & A. 

A pre-lecture reception will be held from 4:15 - 5:00 PM in AL 211. Light refreshments will be provided. 

Indeed, the question that bears down on decoloniality and social justice ideas, discourses and even practices is – what kinds of futures might constitute their ultimate trajectory? This talk thus probes and also risks the articulation of imagining a radical collectivity-yet-to-come. It seeks to insert the following question into the debate – what kinds of politics might be required in the present so that other kinds of futures might be glimpsed." - Professor Rinaldo Walcott
