"The Global Imagination of Racial Justice: Coalition, Comparativism, Community" is part of a larger project that the ACGCC (American Cultures & Global Contexts Center) launched in Fall 2020 to explore how artists and academics bridge U.S. national and global conceptions of racial justice through comparative projects in cultural, literary, and media studies, that employ decolonial, intersectional, postcolonial, and transnational methods.The symposium will take place April 8 -9, 2022 and will feature Sa’dia Rehman, an artist who works on the global refugee crisis, and Natalie Diaz, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book Postcolonial Love Poem (2020), as keynote speakers. We will also have various scholars -- from UCSB and from universities across the nation -- presenting on panels throughout the two-day event, including our department's very own Professor Omise'eke Tinsley.
