All my/our relations: Decolonizing the Western Philosophy through Indigenous and Feminist Collaboration

Series of lectures: Radical Transfeminism in connection with the exhibition MILLIONAIRES CAN BE TRANS*

With Sebastian de Line

Can posthumanism be decolonized?

In Cree and Michif indigenous languages, Niw_hk_m_kanak means ‘all my/our relations.’ In this discussion, I will endeavour to explain and weave together a possibility of collaboration between all my/our relations and diffractive posthumanism as transmitted in traditional indigenous knowledge explained by L. Little Bear and contemporary western feminist scholars, Donna Haraway and Karen Barad. I believe these philosophical projects can benefit each other and expand upon a feminist discourse of science and philosophy, without the necessity of relying upon occidental systems. Feminism is constantly amending limitations of objective philosophy. How can feminism amend dualism and objectivity through bifocal perspectives? Can a fuller picture be experienced or only viewed? Would transfeminism potentially benefit from such a collaboration between feminist and indigenous philosophy?

Radical Transfeminism: The failed political myth of equality through Law

A Case for Prison Abolition.

In this talk Chryssy Hunter und Sam Lamble of Bent Bars will be examining the limits of UK law in offering recognition, protection against various forms of discrimination harassment and victimisation, and promoting equality for minoritized people. In the context of Radical Transfeminism they are going to talk about the case of trans* feminine prisoners and how the law fails them. Using the Equality Act 2010 as a metonymic point of reference in this discussion of trans* issues but will cross refer as well to the Gender Recognition Act 2004 and will begin with a little background.
