Decolonizing Education: Towards Academic Freedom In Pluriversality (DETAFIP)

The School of Global Studies at the University of Sussex invites participation in a one-day conference on the 11th April 2016 and a two-day seminar on the 12-13th April on the Decolonization of Education towards Pluriversality/Multiversity. The conference and seminar will focus on how best to challenge and change orthodoxies within the academy that preserve the hegemony of dominant perspectives on what counts as knowledge and whose knowledge counts.
