Lecture by Macarena Gómez-Barris
“Submerged Perspectives: Thinking with Southern Epistemes in the Era of Exploration and Colonialism.”
Gómez-Barris lecture center the work of artists, scholars, and new social and ecological formations that reside in that productive tension of critical undoing and living and making otherwise. In particular, it draws from her in-progress book At the Sea’s Edge that considers the oceanic not only as an archive of coloniality, and a receptacle and spectacle of planetary ruins, but as a dynamic life force and historical shaper in relation to the forces of racial and extractive capitalism. Thinking with submerged perspectives primarily in the trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic, Gómez-Barris expands upon Kamau Brathwaite’s concept of tidealectics as key to understanding how to move within and beyond the colonial anthropocene.
