Human Rights in Transit and the Migration, Mobility and Immobility Arts & Humanities Discovery Theme will be hosting the symposium "Naming (In)Justice: Rights and Resistance Across Queer Migrations and Trafficking." The symposium will focus on sites of solidarity across queer migrations and critical anti-trafficking studies. Topics that cross-pollinate both of these academic and activist fields include the policing of mobility and sexuality, structural racial and gendered violence, colonial dispossession, and the struggles for the abolition of borders, prisons, and colonialism today.
Introductions and the panels for the symposium will begin at 9:15am on Thursday, October 18th, and take place in the Ohio Union Cartoon Room. A zine workshop will follow beginning at 3:30pm in the Ohio Union Interfaith Room. RSVPs are required for the workshop portion of the event. The entire event is free and open to the public.
