Event:: CLOUDS
When:: Thursday, September 26, 4-6 pm
Where:: Sidney Smith 2098, 100 St. George St, University of Toronto

Salon Theme :: This year’s Salon invites participants to craft and share critical itineraries that respond to the political urgencies of lives and worlds altered by colonialism and expanding global capitalism. While recognizing how technoscience is deeply implicated in violence, how might we also attend to the non-hegemonic possibilities, alters, and elsewheres that are within technoscience? Read our provocation here:
