Priyamvada Gopal: From Anticolonialism to Decolonization. Radical Possibilities
The series aims to create a dialogue about decolonisation and foster connections across scholarships by bringing together conversations at the University of Basel with invited guests who approach their academic, institutional and/or political work from a decolonial perspective. Herewith, the organizers will be looking beyond university through engaging with Non-Western ways of knowing as well as ongoing anti-colonial struggles, testimonies and movements. Engaging with practices of unlearning that bring together academics, students, staff and others, will be both difficult and empowering. To guide the conversations, the organizers invite the participants to reflect collectively upon a series of questions: what is the scope of radical decolonial pedagogies in our education system? Can a decolonial approach in pedagogy and research lead to institutional, societal, and political changes? What are the limitations of these actions within a neoliberal context?
