Radical Kinship: Solidarity & Political Belonging
- Organizer: A/P/A Institute at NYU
- Address: New York, NY United States
Presented by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and The Latinx Project at NYU.
This panel explores contemporary debates on solidarity and coalitional politics that are instrumental to conceptualizing political subjectivity, collectivity and belonging in our current political conjuncture. Engaging with questions of intersectionality, afro-pessimism and Marxism, this session invites speakers Lisa Duggan (NYU Department of Social & Cultural Analysis), Che Gossett (Rutgers University New Brunswick), Shellyne Rodriguez (artist and community organizer), and Helga Tawil Souri (NYU Department of Media, Culture, and Communications) to address the urgency of political affinities that can activate new socio-political imaginaries and envision alternative foundations and horizons for coalitional politics. Moderated by Layal Ftouni (Utrecht University).
