The World is Alive
and That Changes Everything
A 3-part Course with Bayo Akomolafe
Bayo Akomolafe invokes the wisdom of his native lands in West Africa: “The times are urgent, let us slow down.” Reading this humbling vocation to “slow down” as an invitation to rethink our imaginations of activism, justice and power, and attend to the more-than-human processes in and around us, Bayo will present his concept of postactivism. The course:
- Integrates story, indigenous inquiry, critical race concerns, new materialist insights and scientific explorations into the nature of nature.
- Talks about the pressing imperatives to rethink what it means to be human
- Conducts exercises that bring us into emancipatory connections with a world alive
