The one-day course Decolonizing The Mind (DTM) explores the concepts and tools from the theoretical framework Decolonizing The Mind. Two narratives of liberation had dominated knowledge, culture and activism the past 150 years: Liberalism and Marxism. They are rooted in the European Enlightenment. Decolonial thinking is a collection of contributions to a third narrative of liberation with different labels (postcolonialism, orientalism, subaltern studies, Islamic liberation theology). DTM aims to develop a coherent theoretical framework as an alternative to Liberalism and Marxism.
This course is aimed at activists and academics who want to know about and make a contribution to the development of this coherent framework. It is offered on 24th or 25th February 2018. The course is designed and presented by Sandew Hira from IISS in The Hague, Netherlands.
