TCU 10th Global Innovator Award Banquet

Thursday Nov 15 | 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Banquet celebrating Global Innovator awardee, Godelieve Mukasarasi, director of SEVOTA – a collection of community centers in 11 provinces in Rwanda.

As the founder and leader of the SEVOTA organization, Mrs. Mukasarasi has been successfully mobilizing rural Rwandan communities toward a culture of peace and non-violence in the post-genocide era since 1994. Educated as a social worker and psychologist, her work has been primarily focused on women who were survivors of sexual assault and children born of rape. Over the years, SEVOTA has developed as a community resource through its programming: education, agri-business, banking, craftsmaking, family support, as well as medical access and counseling. SEVOTA centers are gathering places for entire communities – both survivors and perpetrators – as all now come together to participate in healing at grassroots level.

TJ Tallie-final

Occupying Spaces: Gender, Sexuality and Settler Colonialism

Thursday Apr 19 | 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

T.J. Tallie, Assistant Professor of History at Washington and Lee University will discuss the the myriad ways in which settler colonialism serves as an ongoing occupation, where European arrivals attempt to make a recognizable and inhabitable home in indigenous lands. In these conflicts between settlers and indigenous peoples we can see the creation of ideas of race, gender, and sexuality more clearly.

T.J. Tallie’s forthcoming book, Unsettling Natal: Race, Gender, and Colonial Logics in Southern Africa, 1850-1910, examines the creation of the nineteenth century settler colony of Natal and ideas of race and gender in the British Empire.

In 1980 he was expatriated and released through Amnesty International to West Germany. From 1993-1999, he was co-editor of the literary journal Ostragehege. Since 2003 he has also served as rehabilitation advisor to victims of the GDR dictatorship under the auspices of the Saxony State Commission for the Stasi (East German Secret Police) Files.
