Bodies that Haunt: Rethinking the Political Economy of Racialized Death

Thu, Nov 10, 1:30 to 2:45pm, Hilton Minneapolis, Marquette 3

Session Submission Type: Roundtable


Inspired by bell hooks’s work in feminist of color coalition, this roundtable seeks a politic of gathering with our communities, not only living but no longer and not yet. This conversation unpacks interwoven geohistorical configurations of haunting: centering not only the disruptive return of the unwanted dead of extractive colonial violence but also the modes with which the racialized living may haunt capital production and future beings give warning of ecological and political conditions to come. What methodologies of haunting and being haunted can we read and practice together toward futures that are truly liberatory in being truly collectively determined?
