Geography Webex Seminar:
Risk, Relation, Revolution, Repair: Anti-Colonial Responses to Radio
For this seminar’s Webex access link, please email Kevon Rhiney.
Risk, Relation, Revolution and Repair: these four concepts will serve as the basis for a conversation about how anti-colonial storytelling might disrupt hegemonic political, social and cultural discourse in critical media studies. What are the risks involved in producing subversive and inelegant subject formations that inform emerging political imaginaries, ways of being – alternative cultural geographic revolutions that pulsate with anger, love and optimism? This presentation will explore my personal and professional ambivalence, through struggles and unsettling moments that have occurred over the past two years, as I created and hosted a daily radio show entitled “Sense of Place.” Through a series of vignettes and radio clips, I focus on the concepts of risk, relation, revolution and repair to share with listeners what anticolonial approaches can do to engage and refuse ongoing forms of colonial violence.
