Decolonizing the Academy

Please be welcome to this seminar on the legacy of past assumptions regarding racial and civilizational hierarchy on present-day academic research and teaching. Inspired by the recent developments in the UK we invite a number of speakers who have engaged with this topic from a range of perspectives to a debate. Norway's particular self-image as somehow separate from, and innocent of, the history of colonialism, as well as the endurance of problems of meaningful representation and diversity in higher education, makes this a topic that is highly necessary and long overdue.
