This seminar on Rita Segato will explore the transdisciplinary and pioneering work of one of the most important figures of the Latin American critical scene. The four course meetings will be led by students, professors, and other members of our university community who are interested in Rita Segato’s work. That work is characterized by novel approaches to – and complex interactions between – problems like race, gender, the coloniality of power, human rights, and the new permutations of biopower, among many others.
Each seminar will meet in 216 Burr Hall from 4:30 to 6:30pm, and will include the participation of Rita Segato.
Session 1: Estructuras elementales de la violencia (Mon., 3/21)
Session 2: La guerra contra las mujeres (Fri., 4/1)
Session 3: Crítica de la colonialidad (Mon., 4/11)
Session 4: Contrapedagogías de la crueldad (Fri., 4/15)
Readings will be available two weeks before each session. Sessions will be conducted in Spanish and Portuguese.
Participants in all four sessions will receive a certificate of participation signed by Rita Segato.
