Event Subtitle: Inaugural Dean of Arts Distinguished Lecture Series on Human Rights & Social Justice

Description:

In conjunction with the new Masters of Arts in Human Rights and Social Justice program, here at Thompson Rivers University, internationally recognized scholar Dr. Sherene H. Razack will be speaking in-person at TRU. Open to students, alumni, faculty, and the public, The Faculty of Arts looks forward to welcoming you to this Inaugural Dean of Arts Distinguished Lecture Series on Human Rights and Social Justice.

Sherene H. Razack Bio:

I am an interdisciplinary critical race and feminist scholar whose work engages several fields including Sociology, Legal Studies, Gender Studies, Ethnic Studies, American Studies and Political Science. With a central focus on racial violence, I seek to explore how imperialism, colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy interlock to produce and sustain a racially structured world where racialized populations are marked as disposable and subjected to an unrelenting violence. My books and publications examine settler colonialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism and global white supremacy with a particular focus on the gendered effects of anti-Indigenous, anti-Black, anti-Asian and anti-Muslim racism as they operate in law.
