CIARS 2016 “DECOLONIZING CONFERENCE”
November 3, 2016 - November 5, 2016
“Race, Anti-Racism and Indigeneity: Anti-Colonial Resurgence and Decolonial Resistance”
The Centre for Integrative Anti-Racism Studies (CIARS) brings together faculty, students and community organizations whose research interests and political commitments are in anti-racism and critical race studies. In collaboration with New College, Equity Studies (University of Toronto) and the Harriet Tubman Institute (York University), CIARS is pleased to announce that it is holding a three-day international conference to lead critical discussions on the theme of “Race, Anti-Racism and Indigeneity: Anti-Colonial Resurgence and Decolonial Resistance”. To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of CIARS/10th Anniversary of the “Decolonizing the Spirit”, the “Decolonizing Conference” intends to bring together a range of international and local scholars, activists, and artists in order to reframe the way anti-racism and critical race studies are tied to questions of Indigeneity and decolonization. As anti-racism and critical race thinkers, it is imperative that we challenge liberal articulations that negate the saliency of Land, bodies, and knowledges.
LOCATION: The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, is located on the shared Land of the Haudenosaunee, Ojibway, Huron-Wendat, and Anishnabek peoples.
