Moves towards an Anticolonial Academy- Exploring Post and Decolonial Epistemic Options
The panel is the inaguration 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.
Diana Mulinari, Professor, Lund University
Adrian Groglopo, Senior Lecturer, University of Gothenburg
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.
