Rustbelt Abolition Radio: The Death Penalty, Sovereignty and Abolition

Rustbelt Abolition Radio presents a conversation with professor Lisa Guenther on the death penalty within the context of colonial and capitalist relationships.

Lisa Guenther, currently a professor of philosophy at Queen’s University in so-called Ontario, Canada, deconstructs the state’s right to kill or let live within settler-colonial & racial capitalist social relations. We also discuss abolitionist forms of relationality that interrupt sovereignty’s hold on life and social death.
