Ecologies of Justice welcomes Prof. Radhika Govindrajan on April 20th, Wednesday at 6pm.
About this event:
On More Than Human Fascism:
This talk explores how fascist politics is vitalized and naturalized through claims that it is fueled by the agency and desires of more-than-human beings. Drawing on ethnographic evidence from India, it argues that celebratory accounts of ontological politics in which nonhumans play a key part can depoliticize them in ways that do not allow for a sustained and serious engagement with their situated histories and politics.
Radhika Govindrajan is an Associate Professor of Anthropology and International Studies at the University of Washington. Her book Animal Intimacies: Interspecies Relatedness in India’s Central Himalayas was published by the University of Chicago Press in 2018 and Penguin Random House India in 2019.
Date: April 20th, Wednesday
Venue: Thomas Schmidheiny Lecture Room, Mugar 200
