Ruth Wilson Gilmore is one of the foremost scholar-activists of our time. Her research and organizing has reshaped the way we think about race, place, power, prisons, and the transformations of state structures. Join us in celebrating her work and the publication of Abolition Geography: Essays Towards Liberation as part of the Fall 2022 Fall 2022 IDS Lecture Series at The Cooper Union. On this occasion, Ruth Wilson Gilmore will be in conversation with three of her essential, long-time interlocutors: Lisa LoweShellyne Rodriguez, and Nikhil Pal Singh. The panel conversation will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing session.

The IDS public lecture series, designed as an introduction to some of the most pressing questions driving contemporary thought and practice, consists of talks by artists, theorists, scientists, activists, writers, and other practitioners involved in the arts from positions that embody an interdisciplinary approach or that imply new uses for disciplinary traditions. The seminar and series are organized by Leslie Hewitt and Omar Berrada.

The 2022–23 IDS lectures are organized along three general directions: “Trace,” where we reflect on evidence, between aesthetic gesture and algorithmic reason; “Performance,” where we consider meaning in movement through experiments with sound and the body; and “Disruption,” where we look at forms and scales of social transformation.

The Fall 2022 IDS lectures will take place in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium at The Cooper Union, on Thursdays at 7pm EST, unless otherwise specified. They are free and open to the public upon presentation of a proof of vaccination and booster, and use of a CDC-recommended mask. Please subscribe to our mailing list for weekly notifications.
