The Other Universals consortium will be hosting an online seminar with Souleymane Bachir Diagne
Diagne is a philosopher based at Columbia University. His talk will reflect on a new co-authored dialogue between himself and the Africanist anthropologist Jean-Loup Amselle, In Search of Africa(s): Universalism and Decolonial Thought (2020).
The Other Universals consortium will be hosting a series of online seminars over the next few months. These talks will draw on political and aesthetic archives of emancipatory projects of the global south. They will examine radical traditions and ideas of expansive citizenship that have emerged in the colonial and postcolonial modern. Particular focus will be on idioms of difference, which define insider and outsider, majority and minority, how these emerged, were negotiated and transcended.
The CHR fellowship programme will continue in 2022 through online platforms and, where permitted, limited live events hosted in compliance with COVID-19 protocols. Please follow our events page for updates about events.
