Decolonize This! International Theorizing and Praxis of Decolonization

The Centre for Culture, Identity and Education, in collaboration with the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at UBC, organized a symposium on decolonizing approaches to culture and education, at the Peter Wall Institute on November 26th, 2018. 

This Symposium brought together faculty and graduate students from Rhodes University, UBC, and OISE-UT who work in the area of decolonizing in the fields of the arts, community building, and higher education nationally and internationally. The presentations interrogated the myths and realities underpinning decolonial theory and praxis and articulated more context specific approaches in social justice projects from decolonizing the university in South Africa, Palestine and Canada through performing decolonization through dance in Latin America and examination of everyday cultural practice in China to a transnational rejection of the modern/colonial imaginary and the gesturing toward a decolonial approach to equity education.
