Program in Literature Spring Symposium

Entangled and Incommensurate Racializations

This two-day symposium will take up the charge of thinking disparate modes of racializations as coevally constituted and entangled in discourse, material experience, coloniality, and geopolitics. We hope to consider how theories of race emerge at the site of antiracist and anticolonial political organizing and struggle. Ultimately, we want to think about how entangled and incommensurate racializations reshape conventions and traditions of critical theory.
