Europe postcolonial

Walter Mignolo

In The Wretched of the Earth from 1961, Frantz Fanon wrote that Europe was literally a product of the Third World. Where does this radical understanding lead us to today?

A talk by Walter D. Mignolo, Professor of Literature and Director of the Center for Global Studies at Duke University, Durham, on “Eurocentrism and (De)Coloniality, Today.” Followed by a discussion with Manuela Boatca, Professor at the Institute for Latin America Studies, Berlin, author of writings including “Modernity Thought Through”; Sebastian Conrad, Professor of Modern History at the FU Berlin, whose works include German Colonialism – A Short History; and Andreas Eckert, Shalini Randeria, and Regina Römhild, editors of Jenseits des Eurozentrismus.
