Bodies and racial capitalism

'Bodies and racial capitalism' is the second of three events of the Performance and Political Economy: Bodies, Politics, and Well-Being in the 21st Century online Research Seminar Series. The series’ main aim is to examine timely issues regarding the relationship between bodies, politics, and well-being through interdisciplinary dialogues between researchers, industry professionals, and stakeholders from the arts, politics, and health and well-being. It invites ten international speakers in three curated, interlinked, dialogical events.

Dr Katerina Paramana, who curated and organised this research seminar series says: "Join us to hear from these fantastic speakers. We will start each event with short presentations by the speakers, engage in dialogue, and then open to you for questions."

This second event examines how bodies are affected by racial capitalism at micro and macro levels. It brings into dialogue the following speakers:

• Erin Manning, Professor and Research Chair - Speculative Pragmatism, Art, and Pedagogy, Concordia University

• Kimberly Welch, J.D. Candidate at UCLA School of Law and PhD Performance Studies, UCLA

• Sean Metzger, Professor and Head of Performance Studies, UCLA
