3e ProjectA conversation Wednesday will discuss the three ecologies: social, environmental, and conceptual.

Artist-scholars to discuss work of creation

The Propeller Project will host a conversation over Zoom with artist-scholars Erin Manning and Brian Massumi on Wednesday, Nov. 24.

They promise a wide-ranging conversation about research creation, property, alter economies, radical pedagogies, and their latest endeavour, the 3ecologies Project.

Dr. Manning is a professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University, studying in the interstices of philosophy, aesthetics, and politics, concerned, always, about alter-pedagogical and alter-economic practices. Her current research explores the transversality of the three ecologies: the social, the environmental, and the conceptual. An iteration of 3e is a land-based project north of Montreal where living and learning is explored. Legacies of SenseLab infuse the project, particularly the question of how collectivity is crafted in a more-than human encounter with worlds in the making.

Dr. Massumi is a professor in the Department of Communication Sciences at the Université de Montréal and the author of numerous works across philosophy, political theory, and art theory. His publications include Couplets: Travels in Speculative Pragmatism (2021), 99 Theses for the Revaluation of Value (2018), and Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation (augmented second edition 2021). With Manning and the 3Ecologies Project, he participates in the collective exploration of new ways of bringing philosophical and artistic practices into collaborative interaction.

All are welcome to join this free public event, from 4 to 5 p.m. Register here to receive the link to the Zoom webinar.

Nombuso DlaminiEducation professor Nombuso Dlamini of York University will present her research into the challenges of institutional racism in a conversation Nov. 26.

Presentation to promote role of academia in redressing injustice

A global pandemic provides opportunities to think, reflect, and act against unjust treatment of Black and Indigenous people as a result of institutionalized and systemic racism, says Nombuso Dlamini.

A professor and research chair in York University’s Faculty of Education, she will discuss the role of academia in redressing these injustices in an online address entitled “Invisibility by any other act,” Friday, Nov. 26.

“To become scholarly and humanly visible, and to ‘see’ others, one must know how to ‘see’ the self in others,” says Dr. Dlamini. “To become aware of invisibility, one must know how to identify invisibility and its effects on those made invisible.”

Part of a series of sessions sharing research in the field of education, the public lecture will begin at 10 a.m. on the Zoom videoconference platform. All are welcome to observe. Join here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89049534439.
