Imagine Otherwise: Jennifer Lynn Kelly on Anticolonial Solidarity Tourism

Jan 12, 2023Podcast

Imagine Otherwise is back!

In episode 146 of Imagine Otherwise, I interview feminist studies and ethnic studies professor Jennifer Lynn Kelly about her new book Invited to Witness.

In our conversation, we talk about the temporality and pace of doing ethnographic research for this book while also navigating state visa politics, job search demands, and family commitments can pull in multiple directions.

Jennifer also shares the importance of letting a writing project change itself and change its writer over time and why slowing down and listening to where our research wants to go makes for richer scholarship.

We close out the episode with a vision for a demilitarized and decolonized future, as well as how we can make space for joy while building that world.
