DVC Faculty Lecture

Albert Ponce

Resisting Racial Violence

Migrants, Outlaws & Radical Visionaries; towards a decolonization of race

In his lecture Dr. Ponce excavates the constitutive nature of race, law, and violence and its development in producing the racialized disposability and coloniality of migrants & Black, indigenous and people of color in the US racial capitalist state. Resisting Racial Violence articulates how these historical and contemporary processes play out in the courts and in the streets building the possibilities for a decolonial future. This movement towards decolonizing race is a call for a full humanity and the abolition of white supremacy.

Layered Voices in the Pivot to Online Instruction

Lisa Orta and Dr. Anne Kingsley will capture a moment in DVC history by bringing the audience into the anatomy of the college’s pivot to remote instruction in response to the pandemic in March 2020. Their lens will be on the faculty experience in that pivot and Distance Education’s efforts to provide instructor support. They will capture and honor ways the teaching and learning process was forever changed by this experience.
