“What is Settler Colonialism?”
Event 4: Refusal

Friday, December 8, 2023
12:00pm–2:00pm, Buell 300 N
Join in person or on zoom

In light of the climate at our university and in recognition of our school’s past initiatives, students across the PhD programs at GSAPP, and with the support of the Post-Conflict Cities Lab and Masaha, decided to put together a series of teach-ins that offer a space to discuss, openly and critically, the manifold intersections between settler colonialism and design. ‘What is Settler-Colonialism?’ brings together young scholars into weekly conversations that work through questions on the politics of space, the valences of technology and the composite relations at play in settlement.

Amani Agbaria, PhD Student, Columbia University

Agbaria is interested in studying social movements as sites of Refusal in occupied Palestine. Her research explores how “political collectivity reconfigures the present and aspires to reshape the future. She is particularly interested in tracing how new political imaginations and subjectivities are shaped and how such collectives perform "popular sovereignty.”
