The event creator says
Post-raciality views racial difference as anachronistic and refuses to make retributions for historically-rooted racial oppression inherent to capitalist development. Moreover, under neoliberalism, the arts and humanities merely serve the function of opening up new markets of valorization for financial capital. How do we incorporate race into a conversation about art and futurity in a post-racial crisis that has become more acute since the recent mobilizations in New York and Ferguson? This is but one of the questions we will address in this panel discussion.

Will Herron will present on his experiences as an East LA muralist and member of the Chicano avant garde performance art collective ASCO, Ricardo Dominguez will discuss the relationship of electronic civil disobedience and alternative futures, and Shelley Streeby will present her recent research on Octavia Butler and Afro-Futurism.
