Doing the Work to Be Good Relatives
A conversation about antiracism and Indigenous decolonialism
The term antiracist incorporates the belief that racism is everyone’s problem and each person has a role to play in stopping it. The term, however, cannot fully encompass Indigenous peoples’ experiences or fully dismantle colonial systems without an active engagement with decolonial perspectives.
In her presentation, Lisa King, associate professor of English, will bring together the concepts of antiracist work and decolonial work to show how the two can be complementary, but how we need them both to deal with the ideological and cultural frames we live in, as well as the histories we inherit.
