Dwelling Together Between Queasy Worlds: Toward Sacred Citizenship

As liberal multiculturalism crumbles and critiques become increasingly weaponized, new scholarly frameworks are needed for working with fear and difference as we muck our way toward expanded alliances and webs of care. How are we to think, speak, and create, when disengaging from terms of “self” bound within settler colonialism and racialized capitalism? I am interested in border spaces inhabited when one detaches, either by choice or force, from illusions of wholeness, cohesive identity, progress, and the American Dream. What possibilities exist in-between self/not-self, embodiment/disembodiment, language and being? This experiential workshop will explore these questions through storytelling, writing, and embodied contemplative practices with the intent to build what M. Jacqui Alexander calls, “sacred citizenship,” or beloved communities of difference.
