The Illusion of Boundaries and the Gift of Multispecies Justice

 

The idea of borders and boundaries has a tight hold in politics and on academic disciplines. A gift of multispecies justice is to step through these illusionary boundaries into a world of nested relational webs between disciplines, cultures, lands, waters, seas, animal, vegetable, mineral, elemental and spiritual.

From within the lens of Mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge and philosophies), SEI Postdoctoral Fellow Christine Winter’s farewell lecture will discuss how multispecies justice might address multiple injustices wrought by the expansionist and universalising impulses of academia, imperialism and globalisation, and demonstrate the potential in multispecies justice of unbounded philosophic openings.
