CHR Postcolonial/Decolonization Reading Group

The Postcolonial/Decolonization Reading Group sees itself as a community of scholars interested in engaging in conversation on topics pertaining to the history of colonialism, the work of decolonization, forms of empire, imperialism, and neo-colonial experiences. We hope to look at the theoretical, political, economic, and cultural intersections within postcolonial theory and decolonization movements found in texts, media, and the arts and how to apply that knowledge to teaching, scholarship and activism.

The group will formally meet the first Wednesdays of the month. However, we see ourselves engaging not only during formal meeting times, but also through the use of discussion boards and forums. Our discussions are open to everyone who is interested in this work, not just those who have the time to read or listen to the suggested texts – those will be a jumping off point for our discussions.

If you’d like more information about the group, want to be added to our online forum, or attend a meeting, contact Shauna Rigaud,
