Description: Notes Toward a Theory of Transformative Justice

10.03.17 | tag: Mechelen

Denise Ferreira da Silva outlines a plan for decolonization — or a draft of a thesis, a praxis, and corresponding figuration entwining juridic, economic and symbolic architectures that render racial (total, institutional, symbolic) violence pervasive in the global present and its attendant matrix of power. With a plan that acknowledges how the workings of raciality expose the limits of the liberal program beyond modern thought, da Silva contributes to the preparatory work necessary for figuring decolonization as the aim of a transformative theory of justice.
