Protesting the Imperial Imaginary: Moving from Colonial (Mis)Education

This year, the keynote speaker at the MLK symposium, Dr. Angela Davis, emphasized the entanglements between “local" and “global" social justice issues through the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.—“the conscience of an awakened activist cannot be satisfied with a focus on local problems." In this community conversation, through the lens of escalating protests around the world, we ask how the SOE community can recognize and explore the multiple, complex, and often ambiguous links between global coloniality, epistemic justice and education.

Community Conversations are times when all members of the SOE community are invited to come together to address issues affecting members of our community, to learn from and with each other, and to promote the values of dije (diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity) in the SOE. We hope that your attendance can lead to the cultivation of new connections across the SOE community. We address a different topic each month and will meet on the following dates this fall.

Refreshments will be provided!
