Description
Though there is a very interesting body of work on access to water as a "human right," and on the racialized and gendered politics of water, the absence of a decolonial theory of bodies of water raises questions. In this Humanities Without Boundaries lecture, activist, scholar, and filmmaker Françoise Vergés will try to bring the "vast library of water" into antiracist and anti-imperialist politics, and ask, what would a feminist decolonial theory of water look like?
