Within the public lecture series Aesthetics from the Margins

The lecture seriesAesthetics from the Margins (course no. 52040-01, 3 CP) proposes historical and theoretical inquiries into questions of sensual perception and world-making. By considering different aesthetic forms, media and practices – among them photography, literature, language, and the performing arts – we will explore colonial and postcolonial ways of being in and making sense of ‘world(s)’, especially if these are articulated from a perspective of marginality.
