About the seminar

In this talk, Aph Ko will explore afrofuturistic frameworks for reimagining a more liberatory world. Aph Ko examines mulitdimensional liberation theories that go beyond intersectional frameworks. According to Aph Ko we must have a decolonial approach towards dismantling environmental/animal/racial oppression, which starts with unpacking the coloniality already present in our current social justice movements. During this seminar, afrofuturistic frameworks are explored as a way to decolonize our movements. 

Aph Ko is a theorist and independent digital media producer. She is the author of Racism as Zoological Witchcraft: A Guide to Getting Out and co-author of the book Aphro-ism: Essays on Pop Culture, Feminism, and Black Veganism from Two Sisters. Aph Ko has a B.A. in Women’s and Gender Studies, and an M.A. in Communication. She is a founding collective member of the North American Association for Critical Animal Studies, and also the founder of  Black Vegans Rock.  Aph Ko has made important contributions especially in regards to race and animal oppression, and is a prominent voice when it comes to developing novel approaches to dismantle and fight interconnected oppressions.
