Worlds at home: On cosmopolitan futures
- 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Peter Wall Institute
- Registration: http://worldsathome.arts.ubc.ca/rsvp
Worlds at Home will draw scholars, artists, writers and activists from Canada, Australia and the U.S. to explore what our futures might look like in a world that continues to be divided by war, dispossession and racial violence.
These problems are not out there. In Canada, colonialism remains a structural and violent force evidenced in unresolved Indigenous land claims and resource rights, in the intergenerational trauma of residential schools, the inconsistent and uneven policies regarding refugees and asylum seekers, and in the ongoing racialization of ethnic and religious communities.
