In this groundbreaking inaugural Alchemy Lecture, four vital contemporary thinkers from different disciplines and geographies come together around the theme of Borders, Human Itineraries, and All Our Relation. This year's alchemists are a philosopher, an architect, a poet, and a cultural theorist - each deep and agile thinkers, on the cutting edge of contemporary thought. In their beautiful, insightful, passionate essays they think about the times we live in, the legacies of anti-colonial struggle, the future of the planet, and the textures of Black and Indigenous life. Braided together in this book, the essays speak to each other in multiple ways, creating something more, something deeper: a startling, revealing vision of the world as it is, and as it could be. Accompanied each year by a live on-stage event in partnership with York University, the Alchemy Lecture revolutionizes the form through the transformative interplay of ideas among the alchemists.
