A ONE-DAY WORKSHOP Friday June 24, 2016 10am to 5pm at SOAS, University of London (Room B111)
Workshop conveners: Dr. Brenna Bhandar (School of Law, SOAS) and Dr. Rafeef Ziadah (Politics and International Relations, SOAS)
You are invited to a one-day workshop with internationally renowned scholar-activists Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and Gary Kinsman to present their decades-long work in the fields of Indigenous rights, settler colonialism, queer politics, and feminist theory. The aim of the workshop is to explore modes of dispossession of land, resources, and ways of living of Indigenous communities; political struggles and forms of resistance across diverse social movements (queer communities, feminists, anti-racist coalitions, etc); and crucially the contradictory and key position of the law as both a tool for social transformation and fundamentally a keystone of historically inscribed dispossession. The day-long workshop will also include presentations from SOAS post-graduate students across Law, Centre for Gender Studies, Development Studies and Politics.
We are honoured to have both speakers at this workshop and look forward to your participation. Spaces are limited, to reserve please email: RZ2@soas.ac.uk
