Orphography of the Wake, 2018, Shellyne Rodriguez
Radical Kinship: Solidarity & Political Belonging
a panel discussion with Lisa Duggan, Che Gossett, Shellyne Rodriguez, & Helga Tawil Souri, & moderated by Layal Ftouni

This panel explores contemporary debates on solidarity and coalitional politics that are instrumental to conceptualizing political subjectivity, collectivity and belonging in our current political conjuncture. Engaging with questions of intersectionality, afro-pessimism and Marxism, this session invites speakers to address the urgency of political affinities (comradeship, radical kinship) that can activate new socio-political imaginaries and envision alternative foundations and horizons for coalitional politics.

The panel was proposed by Layal Ftouni as part of her stay as a ‘global visiting scholar’ at CSGS in 2020 and is the topic of a forthcoming journal issue (2021) she is editing for Darkmatter journal.
