New World Orders: Coloniality, Racial Intimacies, and Disability

UDPATE: Please note the new location below.

Presented by the NYU Department of Art & Public Policy.

Sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, Council for the Study of Disability, Center for the Humanities, Vice Provost’s Office for Faculty, Arts, Humanities, and Diversity, and the Dean’s Office at Tisch. Cosponsored by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, NYU Center for Media, Culture and History, Department of Social and Cultural Analysis, Department of Performance Studies, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Program, NYU Department of Media, Culture, and Communication, and the Hemispheric Institute.

This symposium pairs recent work in critical Indigenous and race studies with disability and queer theories. We will work through important provocations by recent humanists and artists who have turned to the formation of the New World in order to better understand our contemporary moment. These turns force us to account for a deeper sense of history, along with the aftermath of racial logics, colonization, enslavement, resource extraction, the policing of intimacy, and the disablement of bodies/communities. We will explore how to imagine new world orders and futures. What is the responsibility of the humanities and the arts to move forward with the reverberations of the New World? What new world orders can emerge by contending with the “old” New World?

Featuring artists Candice Lin and Xandra Ibarra, Mel Chen (University of California, Berkeley), C. Riley Snorton (Cornell University), Aimee Bahng (Dartmouth University), Jasbir Puar (Rutgers University), Mark Rifkin (University of North Carolina), and Ivan Ramos (University of California, Riverside).

Seating is limited, please register.
