This two-day gathering of academics, artists, and activists honors Stuart McPhail Hall, the late sociologist and cultural theorist. It seeks to build upon Hall’s ground-breaking work on the interrelation of class, race, gender, popular culture, media, language, and power. Speakers include Bill T. Jones, dancer, choreographer, and executive artistic director of New York Live Arts; Katherine McKittrick, professor of gender studies at Queens University; Prathiba Parmar, filmmaker and founder of Kali Films; Françoise Vergés, consulting professor at the Center for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths College and Anjalika Sagar, co-founder of The Otolith Group.
