Concerning Violence: A Decolonial Collaborative Research Group
Meeting Description: 

Professor Kency Cornejo will discuss her recently published essay, "Decolonial Futurisms: Ancestral Border Crossers, Time Machines, and Space Travel in Salvadoran Art." By analyzing several performance, installation, video, and object-based artworks, the conversation will focus on issues of migration, indigenous genocide, feminicide, and captivity as ongoing colonialisms in the region. She will then discuss broader ideas on the coloniality of seeing, decolonial aesthetics, and decolonizing methodologies in art. Please RSVP in order to receive an electronic copy of the recently published essay by Kency Cornejo we will be discussing by emailing Cynthia Garcia at cjgarcia@stanford.edu.
