University of Calgary teach about anti-racism

Pallavi Banerjee, Sociology, in CTV

News coverage of the public installation put on by the YARI-Collective on December 17, 2023 (Sunday), led by Dr. Pallavi Banerjee’s and co-lead Dr. Pratim Sengupta’s and their transdisciplinary team of researcher and youth co-designers. The  YARI—Collective presented a series of interactive re-imaginations of anti-racist futures through stories co-designed by the YARI—Collective’s newcomer youth of color. Freeing us from prescribed definitions of anti-racism, they offered hope by revealing the complex emotions of pain, loss, solidarity and hope that underlie forced migration and are systemically silenced by the procedurality of immigration.
