Four contemporary thinkers from different disciplines and geographies come together around the theme of Borders, Human Itineraries, and All Our Relation. Architect, artist, and urban theorist Dele Adeyemo (UK/Nigeria) calls attention to the complexity of Black infrastructures, questioning how “the environments that surround us condition the possibility of our being.” Poet Natalie Diaz (US/Mojave/Akimel O’otham) writes, “Like story, migration is the sensual movement of knowledge,” and asks, “What is the language we need to live right now?” Philosopher Nadia Yala Kisukidi (France) suggests there is no diasporic life “without the dynamics of fabulation, where we pass down, from generation to generation, the stories of our ancestors who walked barefoot for many months.” And cultural theorist Rinaldo Walcott (Canada) asks us to consider inheritances beyond white supremacist logics, “What might it mean to live a life, if we can’t risk desiring and working towards utopia?” Braided together in this book, the essays speak to each other in multiple ways, creating a revealing vision of the world as it is, and as it could be.
