Kelly Gillespie, Asher Gamedze & Rasigan Maharajh — Re/Distribute: Three Radical Economists on (Post)Apartheid (film screening + discussion)

Virtual Event

Two radical collectives in South Africa working inside and outside the academy to agitate against ongoing histories of dispossession consider what redistribution means in the most unequal national context on earth. This 50-minute film looks at how the promises of redistribution in the anti-apartheid liberation movement were foreclosed during the transition out of apartheid in […]

Samia Khatun — Race, Gender & New Epistemic Grounds: Cross-Cultural Encounters in Desert Australia

Virtual Event

At the forefront of white nationalist border regimes, the Australian nation-state has long operated as an Anglo imperial outpost in the Indian Ocean world. If we look at Aboriginal language archives about South Asians, however, we see alternative epistemic grounds and spatial imaginations on which we can situate historical storytelling about race, gender, and migration. […]

Nick Mitchell – The University in Surplus Perspective, 1945-1968

Humanities 1, Room 210 1156 high st, Santa cruz, CA, United States

Is it possible to historicize higher education without taking its basic categories for granted? In this talk, I aim to provide a historical and theoretical framework for the emergence of mass higher education in the twentieth century U.S. framed by the problem of surpluses—population, labor, and governance capacity. Faced with the prospect of mass unemployment […]

Martina Broner – From Arboreal to Aerial: Seeing the Amazon from Above

Humanities 1, Room 210 1156 high st, Santa cruz, CA, United States

Can seeing the Amazon from above bring about new perspectives on the forest at a critical time? This talk proposes that the documentary Helena Sarayaku manta (dir. Eriberto Gualinga, 2021) rethinks the aerial view by pushing against its historical associations with omniscience and a desire for mastery and by reframing it instead around the vitality […]
