Partnerships

An important partnership that supports AGITATE!’s work is that with the Imagining Transnational Solidarities Research Circle (ITSRC). ITSRC is a research collaborative that works to: (a) deepen our understanding of violence against refugees, immigrants, and U.S. communities of color, and recognize our own complicities and responsibilities in relation to it; and (b) help create just futures for those whose humanity is undermined by laws and sentiments that justify such violence. One of the core questions that guides ITSRC across sites of scholarship, activism, and art is whether Islamophobic violence is an isolated event that has emerged after September 11, 2001 in the “global north,” or whether Islamophobia as a part and parcel of colonialism, settler colonialism, and the rise of the security state in the global south and the global north alike. ITSRC grapples intersectionally with relationships between settler colonialism in the Americas, colonialism in South Asia, and settler colonialism and imperialism in the Southwest Asia and North Africa (Middle East). AGITATE! works in close partnership with ITSRC.
