Join us at our 22-23 Lecture on March 29, 2023 featuring Dalie Giroux from the University of Ottawa.

How can we acknowledge and tackle the effectivity of colonialism in daily life? Colonialism is the situation we are immersed in—its culture is the realm of the repeated, the un-noticed, the ingrained, the fleeting, the actual. Assembling images from family archives, rumors, vernacular art, media reels and literature, Dalie Giroux will explore the predicament of culture as colonial culture in Quebec.
The bottom line: a notion of mastery, a fantasy of power, a whole aesthetics of hierarchy.

Dalie Giroux is Professor in the Institute of Feminist and Gender Studies and the School of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa. A political philosopher and public intellectual whose work focuses on questions of decolonial solidarity through innovative forms of research-creation, Giroux is a member of the independent interdisciplinary collective, l’Atelier de géopoétique.
