Rebel Knowledge- 2018 Social and Environmental Justice Symposium

February 09, 2018 to February 11, 2018

Rebel Knowledge is a social and environmental justice symposium that brings together activists, radical academics, critical researchers, and community organizers to learn, share, and strategize. Aiming to bridge divides and build relationships, Rebel Knowledge is a convergence of academic and community research, activism, and art.

Under the broad theme of 'interlocking struggles', this year's symposium will explore the various ways in which our struggles – and the structures of injustice against which we fight – interact with and depend on one another. We’ll discuss the challenges, contradictions, and possibilities of building interconnected movements and strengthening resistance. From theory to practice and back again, the weekend will be jammed packed with workshops, presentations, panels, art displays, book launches, and interactive discussions.

Some of the topics that will be covered include: climate change, capitalism, and political ecology; feminism, poverty, and animal rights; speculative fiction, pop culture, and social justice; indigenous sovereignty, colonialism, and the politics of solidarity; sexism, gender violence, and fighting back.
