How might we learn to redream dangerously again?
Join us for a two-day symposium that brings together scholars, creative writers, and activists to discuss and envisage how the theories, practices, and visions of the roles of love, identity, and land are complexly intertwined with (trans)national structured challenges.
With a commitment to "learning to redream dangerously again" during a historical moment of an unceasing remonstration of the intersectional inequality and injustice entrenched in the United States and other localities, the 2023 cohort of the Einaudi Center's Global Racial Justice graduate fellows will host the "Decolonial Love" symposium. The symposium aims to reconstruct and reimagine the multifacetedness of individuals and the complexity of their ties with the self, others, and the natural world through the lens of coloniality and decoloniality.
Hosted by the Einaudi Center as part of its inequalities, identities, and justice global research priority, and co-sponsored by Migrations: A Global Grand Challenge, the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program, and the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research.
