The Centre for Integrative Anti-Racism Studies (CIARS) CALL FOR PAPERS

2018 Decolonizing Conference – Call for Abstracts[1]

11th Annual Decolonization Conference of the Centre for Integrative Anti-Racism Studies November 8 -10, 2018, OISE, University of Toronto

CIARS is pleased to announce that it is holding its XI Decolonizing Conference for critical dialogues on the theme of “Dialoguing and Living Well Together: Decolonization and Insurgent Voices.” Using a Decolonizing perspective, the conference hopes to explore new meanings of “living well together” outside of White mythology (in Derrida’s terms) and the capitalist paradigm.  We ask: how do we bring non-Western epistemologies to a terrain that has existed through a long-exercised White Mythology? What Indigenous experiences speak to the possibility of living well together in new futures? What additional dimensions of the above can be gleaned from the constant mobility of bodies, identities, subjectivities and relations? CLICK TO SUBMIT
