Sherene H. Razack bio:
I am an interdisciplinary critical race and feminist scholar whose work engages several fields including sociology, legal studies, gender studies, ethnic studies, American studies and political science. With a central focus on racial violence, I seek to explore how imperialism, colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy interlock to produce and sustain a racially structured world where racialized populations are marked as disposable and subjected to an unrelenting violence. My books and publications examine settler colonialism, colonialism, neo-colonialism and global white supremacy with a particular focus on the gendered effects of anti-Indigenous, anti-Black, anti-Asian and anti-Muslim racism as they operate in law.
This event is located on-campus in the Campus Activity Centre in the Mountain Room, third floor. Free parking is available on-site: Lot H, Lot N, and Lot NT.
