Race, Colonialism and the Refugee Crisis: A conversation

Gabriel Ndayishimiye is a writer based in London, Ontario. His writing focuses on refugee stories and representations of exile experiences. His works critiques the neo-colonial and racialized knowledge structures on which the international refugee system is based.

His first book, Run Elvin!, contains multitudes: it is at once an expertly-crafted history lessons on the causes and consequences of the genocide, an expansive, three-dimensional accounts of one man's refugee experience in all its traumas and triumphs and a love letter from father to son on the power of will, hope and self-examination over the darkest echoes of history.

This talk is open to all, and no registration is required.
