Dr. Rosalind Hampton is one of the two keynote speakers of the Bavarian American Academy Student Conference on Structural Racism in the United States. Cedric Essi will hold his keynote lecture on "It’s all in the Family: Kinship, Property, and Structural Racism after Trump".
Discussing the development of higher education in the settler colonizing of Canada and in the transnational context of empire building, the talk will address contemporary contexts and take up notions of continua to critique social relations and the cycles through which coloniality is reproduced, as well as resisted and interrupted, within academia.
Dr. Rosalind Hampton works as an assistant professor of Black Studies in the Department of Social Justice Education at the University of Toronto. Her current areas of research, teaching, and supervision include Black radical thought, arts, and activism; social relations in Canadian academia; student activism; informal and non-formal learning; and critical-creative praxis in Black Studies research and pedagogy.
