The Other Universals consortium will be hosting a webinar with Adom Getachew.
Getachew is a political theorist at the University of Chicago. She will speak to the themes of her monograph Worldmaking After Empire: The Rise and Fall of Self-Determination, which reconstructs an account of self-determination offered in the political thought of Black Atlantic anticolonial nationalists during the height of decolonization in the twentieth century.
The Other Universals consortium will be hosting a series of webinars 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.
