What role does space play in feeling included? What conditions of possibility do inclusion and diversity necessitate? How can we ward off against these terms becoming hollow and instrumentalized? Join us for a conversation and discussion with Dr. Saladdin Ahmed.

Dr. Saladdin Ahmed is the author of Totalitarian Space and the Destruction of Aura (SUNY, 2019). Currently, he is a visiting assistant professor of political science at Union College in Schenectady, New York. He holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Ottawa.
