Decolonial Week in Berlin (October 26-31)

Veröffentlicht: Oktober 20, 2011 in fight white supremacy. fight racism.

Wednesday 26. Oct (19 Uhr / 7 O’clock):

„Decolonizing the University“, with Houria Bouteldja (Paris) and Ramón Grosfoguel (UC-Berkeley).
Moderation: Andrea Meza Torres

„Les Indigénes de la République“ is a political movement which has intervened urban spaces in Paris and France and gained centrality in debates concerning migration, racism and feminism. Nowadays, „Les Indigénes“ are a „decolonial“ political party. In this evening, Houria Bouteldja and Ramón Grosfoguel will discuss about the difficulties for the dialogue between „Les indigénes“ and the French academic milieu. Which are the social, political and epistemic consequences of this lack of dialogue? How can we think about the links between the social sciences and political movements? Should the western university be decolonized?
– Language: English (Houria Bouteldja speaks in French, and will be translated simultaneously into English).
