Friday, April 2, 12–5pm, and Saturday, April 3, 10am–3pm (exact time subject to change)
Virtual conference on Zoom.
“Biomigrations,” as Jesús Nazario defines it, is a way to reconsider notions of Life and Movement. It is a way to explore one’s community, self, and spirit(s) through violence, refusal, and Indigenous rooting. In other words, Biomigrations is premised on the idea that humans need to know how we are enacting structural pain(s) to humans and non-humans through our Being (violence), how we have arrived at such becoming (refusal), and where we have come from (Indigenous rooting).
The conference’s main goal will be to collaboratively connect American scholars, community members, and artists through the lenses of Food Sovereignty, Food Security, and Food Justice. We welcome all proposals with specific focus on Indigenous and Black knowledge, people, and lands.
