About this event

Ariel F. Sallows Lecture presented by the McKercher Lecture Series at the College of Law

Guest Speaker: Rachel Loewen Walker, Ariel F. Sallows Chair in Human Rights (USask)

The story of human rights is often a linear, progress-oriented tale: we build on existing protections in order to open up freedoms and rights for the future. And yet, experiences of social exclusion, violence, homophobia, and transphobia, are far from linear, they pull us out of our familiar timelines and create paths that remake the past as they land in the present. What alternatives can we open up by remembering that social change must always be expansive and novel? And most importantly - if we are to engender new ways of being and relating to one another, social change must be “out of time” as we know it.
