Manthia Diawara and Nicole Lapierre are launching the Diverse Experiences, Common Causes series, which invite students to “imagine and conceptualize a possible way of living together, not in spite of our differences, but because of them”. It brings scholars from the humanities and the social and environmental sciences, artists and activists together around the questions: ‘How can we welcome singular, minority, marginalized narratives into the living polyphony of a shared world? How can we found solidarities upon the diversity of experiences?’. “These questions are not new. But they are being posed with greater acuity than ever, now that societies are fragmenting, that retreats into identities are increasing, that inequalities are worsening, and that generalized commodification is destroying natural resources.”
