“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

Jan 27: NEW WORLD ORDERS: Coloniality, Racial Intimacies, & Disability

new-world-ordersNew World Orders: Coloniality, Racial Intimacies, & Disability

a symposium featuring artists Candice Lin & Xandra Ibarra, with Aimee Bahng, Mel Chen, Jasbir Puar, Ivan Ramos, Mark Rifkin, & C. Riley Snorton

January 27, Friday
1 to 6 pm

Seating is limited, please register here.

This symposium pairs recent work in critical indigenous and race studies with disability and queer theories. We will work through important provocations by recent humanists and artists who have turned to the formation of the New World in order to better understand our contemporary moment. These turns force us to account for a deeper sense of history, along with the aftermath of racial logics, colonization, enslavement, resource extraction, the policing of intimacy, and the disablement of bodies/communities. We will explore how to imagine new world orders and futures. What is the responsibility of the humanities and the arts to move forward with the reverberations of the New World? What new world orders can emerge by contending with the “old” New World?

Lipton Hall
