Iyko Day, "Alien Capital: Asian Racialization and the Logic of Settler Colonial Capitalism" [VIDEO]

Petteruti Lounge, Stephen Robert '62 Center

Professor Iyko Day will provide an overview of her recent book’s examination of the history and logic of settler colonial capitalism through a focus on Asian racialization in Canada and the U.S. Drawing on an archive of Asian North American visual culture, she will discuss how the historical alignment of Asian bodies and labor with capital's abstract and negative dimensions became one of settler colonialism's defining features. She will also focus on how the economic modalities of racialized alien labor pushes beyond existing approaches to settler colonialism as a Native/settler binary to formulate it as a dynamic triangulation of Native, settler, and alien populations and positionalities.
