Decolonizing Knowledge: African Perspectives on History, Politics, Movement

20.08.2018 - 10:00 - 12:00 Add to calendar

Workshop mit Achille Mbembe (University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg) und Felwine Sarr (Gaston Berger University, Saint-Louis, Senegal)

This workshop will discuss current events and scholarly perspectives on the African continent with two of its foremost thinkers: Achille Mbembe and Felwine Sarr, authors of Critique of Black Reason and Afrotopia, respectively. As a contribution to postcolonial academic efforts to "provincialize Europe" and "decolonize the mind", this timely workshop offers a unique opportunity of exploring critical perspectives on history, politics and the arts that question many of the Eurocentric assumptions still prevalent in academia.
