Practice is a site where inquiry and technique, ontics and epistemics, experimentation and formalization, and creativity and repetition converge. This invites the critical cultivation of skills that can disturb, stir up, and set into motion the sedimented relations that make up what and how we know and do. How might practices be unsettled? What makes a practice unsettling?
Some topics include Afro-Pessimism, Black Optimism / Operations, Critical Whiteness Studies, Critical Indigeneity, Queer of Color Critique, Women of Color Feminism, Dance Studies, Post-Colonial Caribbean and / or Post-Colonial Black Atlantic, and Queer and Crip Studies.
