Hope Under Oppression

Roundtable Katie Stockdale | Hope Under Oppression

A book roundtable with Katie Stockdale (University of Victoria)

Oppression, Katie Stockdale argues in her recent book, is often a threat and damage to hope. Yet many members of oppressed groups, including prominent activists pursuing a more just world, find hope valuable and even essential to their personal and political lives.

Together with the author we discussed the value of hope for both individuals and collectives in the pursuit of justice, and in an increasingly uncertain world.
