Panel Discussion: Moves towards an Anticolonial Academy- Exploring Post and Decolonial Epistemic Options

The panel is the inauguration of the Advanced Study Group (ASG): “Moves towards an anticolonial academy - Exploring post and decolonial epistemic options”. For this occasion we have invited three guest panelists - from different Swedish universities - who work from postcolonial and/or decolonial perspectives in different fields.

Guest Panelists: Diana Mulinari, Professor, Lund University, Adrian Groglopo, Senior Lecturer, University of Gothenburg, and Mahmoud Keshavarz, Post-Doctoral Researcher, Uppsala University

The purpose of this ASG is to collectively navigate and explore the terrain of postcolonial and decolonial thinking. The members of this ASG are a collective of like-minded scholars from three different faculties (Social Science, Humanities and Juridicum), independent research centers (LUCSUS) and affiliated institutions (Raoul Wallenberg Institute) who share interest in post/decolonial epistemologies and who have a political commitment to the idea of an anti-colonial university: academic research and teaching that does not reproduce colonial thinking and action.

Time: September 28, 2018 - 15:00 till 17:00
Location: The Pufendorf IAS, Biskopsgatan 3
