Liveable futures: radical imagination as method // radical imagination as survival
The Annual Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) Conference: Congress
York University | June 2nd
Research cluster chaired by Ardath Whynacht, Erin Fredericks, El Jones and Alex Khasnabish
How can we build pathways to a liveable future in times that are increasingly filled with doom? What is the role of arts-based social research in co-imagining liveable futures? How can Khasnabish & Haiven’s concept of the ‘radical imagination’ inform research practice and research-creation? This panel engages researchers, artists, and social theorists in dialogue about the radical imagination as conceptual territory and method. We call attention to social research and community praxis that engages the imagination—an approach that requires we reach beyond the boundaries of our disciplines, institutions, and methodological traditions.
In the third session, our team is presenting our paper entitled “From HIV/AIDS to COVID-19: Radical Queer Futures Across Generations".
