Inter relational Ecology Salon
organized by Terike Haapoja and Rania Lee Khalil
We are artists, activists, scholars and curators reflecting across the lines of critical ecology, postcoloniality, animality, intersectional feminism and critical race theory: to where these ideas / actions converge, to intervene in the places where they may omit the others, and to consider new futures. Each month, a different member of our salon presents their work in progress or thoughts or ideas, followed by group discussion. We invite anyone thinking along these lines to join us, with the option to present or simply be present.

Intersectional Ecology Salon online
We are very honored to be joined by international attorney, climate justice leader and intergenerational community organizer and director of UPROSE for climate justice, Elizabeth Yampierre.
Of her upcoming talk she writes:
"I would like to talk about what this moment means within the context of Climate Justice and a Just Transition.
What is expected of us and whether we really can go beyond our historical social conditioning to build the just relationships this time is demanding of us.”
please write me to rsvp and for details on the zoom event,

On 10 April, we will be joined by NYU professor of media and culture, Nicholas Mirzoeff who will be discussing land, Palestine, whiteness and Jewishness within the frame of climate catastrophe.
This Saturday, 7 March we will be discussing the essay Racial Capitalocene by Françoise Vergès. We had the honor of meeting Ms. Vergès recently and look forward to more intimately responding to her work.
All meetings take place on the first Saturday of each month, 4-6 pm at the New School, Parsons, 2 West 13th St, in the Bark Room (M 104).
