Conference invitation - Decolonization(s) and Education - New Men and New Polities - 25.-28. November 2015

We cordially invite you to the conference "Decolonization(s) and Education - New Men and New Polities" organised by Prof. Dr. Marcelo Caruso and Daniel Maul (University Aarhus/Denmark). Historically, the detachment from colonial political orders was closely related to the experiment of creating new societies. Educational practices and institutions played a key role in this major task. The conference “Decolonization(s) and Education” addresses this nexus and its educational implications. Independence leaders portrayed the necessity of a new political order as the culmination of the process of independence and, in doing so, they surpassed the mere political concept of decolonization and expanded it to the social and cultural realms. The conference addresses the historical process of decolonization as being the attempt to establish new cultural and political norms far beyond the mere de-legitimization of foreign rule. The conference addresses decolonizations, in a plural form, in order to grasp the diversity of historical situations in which the political and cultural dynamics of the nexus between education and the invention of new polities and ‘new men’ became apparent.
The conference will take place 25.-28. November 2015 at the Humboldt-Universität Berlin, at the auditorium of the Jakob-and-Wilhelm-Grimm-Center Geschwister-Scholl-Str. 1-3. The program you find here
