Political Transformative Experience: Where We Are Now, St. Louis University Online, May 6, 2021

Some events are politically transformative. Examples include the pandemic, climate change, the civil rights movement, and the Black Lives Matter movement. This workshop investigates political transformative experiences through a range of angles, among others, Indigenous philosophies, African-American political thought, and American pragmatism.
