Event description

Description

SahWira Africa International (SAWI) is organising a weekend workshop on 'Decolonising the Mind' with Sandew Hira, which will take place in the Armfelt Auditorium at Åbo Akademi University in Turku on May 19th and 20th.

The deadline for registration is Thursday 10th May. Make sure you register on time so that you can receive the course material in preparation for the course.

Background

The two-day course Decolonizing The Mind (DTM) explores the concepts and tools from the theoretical framework Decolonizing The Mind. Two narratives of liberation had dominated knowledge, culture and activism the past 150 years: Liberalism and Marxism. They are rooted in the European Enlightenment. Decolonial thinking is a collection of contributions to a third narrative of liberation with different labels (postcolonialism, orientalism, subaltern studies, Islamic liberation theology). DTM aims to develop a coherent theoretical framework as an alternative to Liberalism and Marxism.

This course is aimed at activists and academics who want to know about and make a contribution to the development of this coherent framework.


Date and time

The course is held twice from 10am to 5pm both on Saturday 19th and on Sunday 20th of May with the following schedule:

10.00-10.15: Welcome

10.15-12.30: Session 1

12.30-13.30: Lunch

13.30-17.00: Session 2

A tea break will be taken when it seems fit.
