Revolutionary Visions and Practices of Care
March 8, 2021
“Revolutionary Visions and Practices of Care,” a virtual event on March 25 from 2 to 3:30 p.m., will bring together two scholar-activists on the politics, ethics, and practice of care in the contemporary.
Maryam Aziz and Ren-yo Hwang will discuss their respective and intersecting visions for care in the contemporary spanning abolitionist politics, decarceration, queer and trans of color politics, self-defense, solidarity, and the collective empowerment of vulnerable communities. Aziz is a postdoctoral scholar in the Africana Research Center at Penn State; Hwang is an assistant professor of gender studies and critical social thought at Mount Holyoke College.
In conversation with Balbir K. Singh, an assistant professor in the Virginia Tech Department of Religion and Culture, Aziz and Hwang will shed light on their creative visions, writings, and active forms of care for minoritarian peoples.
The program is sponsored by the Department of Religion and Culture. Register for the event here.
