THE 2022 DVC FACULTY LECTURERS

For the first time in the history of DVC Faculty lecturers, 
the Academic Senate Council has selected two proposals.
 
RESISTING RACIAL VIOLENCE, MIGRANTS, OUTLAWS AND RADICAL VISIONARIES; TOWARDS A DECOLONIZATION OF RACE  
 Albert Ponce Ph.D.  
Professor of Political Science, Co-Coordinator Social Justice Studies  
    
In his lecture Dr. Ponce excavates the constitutive nature of race, law, and violence and its development in producing the racialized disposability and coloniality of migrants & Black, Indigenous and people of color in the United States.  By analyzing how the production of racialized subjectivities places people outside of law’s protections, specifically for labor and spatial control, Resisting Racial Violence articulates how these historical and contemporary processes play out in the courts and in the streets building the possibilities for a decolonial future.  Yet, the terrain of contestation is situated in the struggle for ideas and in the practice of those targeted for state-sanctioned racial violence.  Theorizing racial violence illuminates the ways in which it is embedded in the very social fabric of the United States occluding its ubiquity.  This lecture contributes to the development of centering the everyday lives of migrants and racialized people who seek to reclaim their humanity while instantiating the possibility for emerging from the conditions of coloniality and towards a future beyond neoliberal domination.  This movement towards decolonizing race is a call for a full humanity and the abolition of white supremacy.

LIFELINES: LAYERED VOICES IN THE PIVOT 
TO ONLINE INSTRUCTION
Anne Kingsley, English Instructor, Distance Education Coordinator
Lisa Orta, English Instructor, DE Training Lead 

Dr. Orta and Dr. Kingsley will capture a moment in DVC history by bringing the audience into the anatomy of the college’s pivot to remote instruction in response to the pandemic in March 2020. Their lens will be on the faculty experience in that pivot and Distance Education’s efforts to provide instructor support. We will capture and honor ways the teaching and learning process is forever changed by this experience. 

Tuesday, April 12, 2022, from 6:00pm-8:00pm – Q&A After

Wednesday, April 13, 2022, from 12:45pm-2:00pm
