Cult B: Why Decolonize? An Introduction

Sayan Dey (Alliance University, Bangalore) Danille Arendse (Stellenbosch University)

This course explores the concept of decoloniality by introducing the concept itself and interrogating how it can be of relevance to us today. We will explore whether gender has colonial roots and if your spatial location could still be a colonial hub. We move further into the idea that decoloniality could be understood as a metaphor and what this means for us today. Altogether, the discussions will engage with diverse formal and informal decolonial knowledge spaces in an interwoven manner.
