Re-Igniting Critical Race: A symposium on Contemporary Accounts of Racialization in Canada
Nov 2, 2012, 9am-5:30pm
The Challenging Conventions! Speaker Series and Law.Arts.Culture symposium seeks to explore critical race theory and its praxis within the Canadian context by inviting emerging scholars and practitioners to engage with diverse perspectives embedded in this discourse.
Patricia Williams’ seminal text, The Alchemy of Race and Rights (1991) chronicles her experience as a female African-American law professor in two recognized institutions in the United States. Taking our cue from Williams, and the recently celebrated 20-year anniversary of the Critical Race Theory (CRT) movement, the organizers of the Challenging Conventions! Speakers Series (CCSS) in collaboration with Law.Arts.Culture wish to take a moment to reflect on Canadian experiences.
Professor Williams links her journey to the theoretical construction of the law, and simultaneously edifies the intersectional nature of racialization, class, gender and sexuality. Two decades later, her narrative as a law professor, albeit a personal one, remains relevant.
