Dr. Ferreira will reflect on the role of scholars of economic justice in perpetrating or dismantling the intellectual industrial complex and suggest ideas on how to engage activist scholarship guided by the principles of solidarity economy and racial and epistemic justice.
Dr. Priscilla Ferreira is an Afro-Brazilian feminist, abolitionist, and social justice educator, and an Assistant Professor of Geography and Latinx & Caribbean at Rutgers University.
