My work draws on a transdisciplinary variety of traditions to cultivate and mobilise decolonial praxes that intervene in the global colonial legacies underpinning the current necropolitical moment. This work inheres through critical explorations and experiments at the intersections of radical aesthetics, epistemologies and pedagogies. In research terms this currently involves troubling Irish and European colonial amnesias, particularly when it comes to migrants arriving from the Global South, by re/entangling Irish and Nigerian diasporic histories through a synthesis of decolonial aesthetics and arts-based research practices. In teaching/learning contexts it means using aesthesic pedagogies and assignments to support (both under and postgrad) students’ self-directed journeys around and through such ‘light’ topics as interpretive research, the politics of knowledge and research justice; aest-ethics, reflexivity and the crisis of representation towards the development of their own critical and creative praxes. Over the past two decades, I have worked in research, advisory and volunteer capacities with many civic, community and other organisations in Ireland involved in anti-racism, migration and interculturalism work. Ultimately my work, as it is situated within the decolonial paradigm, is all about convoking and occasioning encounters that might inspire and make manifest imagining, being and doing ‘other-wise’. These three decades of training, research and teaching along these lines has formed the basis of a new MA, Race, Migration and Decolonial Studies and a Decolonial Dialogues Platform at UCD(see www.racemigrationdecolonialstudies.com).
