CEE | Center for Experimental Ethnography
In this panel, Aimee Cox (Yale University), Peter Morin (Tahltan Nation, OCAD University), Ayumi Goto (OCAD University), Marlon Swai (University of Cape Town), Dara Culhane (Simon Fraser University) explored artistic modalities and co-laboring as ways of knowing that offer a multi-modal attunement without pinning down or leaning on a redemptive ‘truth’. The panelists offered reflections and performances that attend to institutional and epistemic violence reproduced in the academy, state or extra/judicial systems. They looked to spaces and ways of making knowledge differently that challenge us to reimagine ways of being together and collaborate in research; modes of knowing that refuse and unsettle the ‘comforts’ provided by established canons of what constitutes ‘good’ research methods, conceptual conceits and community entanglements. Together, they reflected on on praxis, reciprocity, and esthetic engagements as ways of being and knowing in this particular moment of reckoning with liberal academic discourses on anti-racism and decolonization.
