Dear all,

We are happy to announce Kathryn Yusoff, professor of Inhuman Geography at Queen Mary 
University of London, as keynote for our 10th Stockholm Archipelago Lecture. The 
Stockholm Archipelago Lectures are part of the public activities of the KTH Environmental 
Humanities Laboratory. The series was initiated in 2012.

Time: Wed 2021-12-01 16.30
Language: English
Lecturer: Kathryn Yusoff

This talk starts with the simple recognition that colonialism (and its kin, climate change) is 
an ongoing process of breaking ground and broken earths. Colonialism instigated 
extractivism and the massive disruption of earthly matter through epistemic detachment (or 
‘White geology’) and its ontologies of rupture. These broken earths are an anticipatory and 
affective architecture of the ongoing sedimentations of colonialism that structure racial 
capitalism. By recognizing these colonial afterlives as forms of geotrauma—a trauma that is 
specifically concerned with the geos through displacement and desecration—it is possible to 
situate race within acts of desecration that require geographic re-description. Kathryn Yusoff 
argues that understanding the Environmental Humanities alongside its colonial twin—the 
Inhumanities—is crucial to remaking broken worlds.
