Roots of Racism

My colleague and life co-journeyer Fabiola Nabil Naguib (artist, writer and activist) deeply inspires and informs my thinking and practice in these areas. She is unable to join me for this session, but we hope to lead a participatory, creative session on the thematic above at next year’s AIS conference. For this year’s session, you are invited to explore our collaborative piece, “Our Hearts as a Map for Change: Notes of Heart Cognition as a Radically Divergent Way of Knowing and Being." ( A short essay by Naguib, “Roots of Racism,” from her book, Uninhabiting the Violence of Silencing: activations of creativity, ethics, and resistance (Creativity Commons Collective and Press, 2007) is also included in the Virtual Gallery as a PDF.
