Event description: 

Jason Allen-Paisant is Lecturer in Caribbean Poetry and Decolonial Thought at the University of Leeds in the UK. He is currently the Director of the Institute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies. He explores the ways in which Afro-diasporic artists and communities shape their futures through embodied, living philosophies. His work is deeply concerned with poetry; its embodied, spatialized, sensed ontologies; and the overlaps between poetry and philosophy. His creative writing (poetry, memoir, critical life writing) addresses issues of time, race, class, and the environmental conditions underpinning Black identity.
