I’ve been excited for months to share Anjali Nath Upadhyay with you. Her podcast, Feral Visions, has been enlightening and inspiring me with so many ideas.
Here’s just a tiny excerpt of an interview she did with D’Juan Owens of #nowhitesaviors:
“As Toni Morrison says, “If you can’t imagine it, you can’t have it.” We have to imagine the world we want to bring to fruition. The first person who made a car, had never seen a car. The first person who made an airplane had never seen an airplane.
Anjali Nath Upadhyay and D’Juan Owens say, if we’re going to envision a world after patriarchy, it’s going to take some belief, and you’ve got to be picky about who you let into your space. Safeguard your imagination. This is our time to speak truth about power.”
Here’s what she’s going to be talking about at the Party at the End of the Patriarchy on Monday the 8th of March.
Decolonial Feminist Alternatives to Professionalism
What and who are you devoted to? What do these devotions call you towards?
In sharing key moments of my journey from a career in academia to grassroots social enterprise, I’ll address decolonial feminist alternatives to mainstream professionalism.
I’ll cover the importance of becoming skillful in cutting our losses in order to steward life-affirming possibilities.
This offering is uniquely tailored for participants who aren’t here to solar panel the Titanic, nor advocate for a Woman of Color captain of the Titanic!
Rather, let’s honor our iconoclastic potential in setting our own standards. Generating metrics that are ecologically respectful, humane, and dignified.
Won’t you join me?
So excited to unplug from dysfunctional “professional” systems and get free together. Are you coming? Just 10 days left before we start the Party at the End of the Patriarchy!
