Concerning Violence

Concerning Violence: A Decolonial Collaborative Research Group is led by Professor José David Saldívar and run by graduate students Rubén Díaz Vásquez, Noor Amr, and Jameelah Morris.
Concerning Violence: A Collaborative Research Group, now in its sixth year, is a multi-year initiative to build a community of scholars that challenge the political, economic, ontological, and epistemic violence of coloniality and racial capitalism. This year’s workshops will be organized around our 2021-2022 theme “Afterlives of Violence: Coloniality and Racial Capitalism in Global Perspective.” If you are interested in joining future workshops and readings groups, please contact Noor Amr at <>.

Our research group is generously sponsored by the Division of Literatures, Cultures and Languages and the Stanford Humanities Center, made possible by support from an anonymous donor, former Fellows, the Mellon Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
