Cecil H. and Ida Green Visiting Professor
This event, co-hosted by UBC's School of Law, features two back-to-back lectures moderated by Brenna Bhandar (Associate Professor, Law).
Professor Gail Lewis, "Coalition as Space of Inter-Generational Learning":
Drawing on work with a feminist Muslim community organisation based in London, this talk considers the extent to which inter generational dialogue around queer desire opens a space for changing modes of mutuality and respect outside registers of hetero-kinship, that so easily and often frames inter generational encounter.
Professor Roderick Ferguson, "The Antagonisms Between Bourgeois and Coalitional Formations":
This talk uses the histories of black, queer and labour formations to theorize the internecine relationships between bourgeois and coalitional practices, particularly as they pertain to race, sexuality and the critique of capital.
