Organised by African Leadership University (Mauritius), Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (Qatar), Practices of ‘Unlearning’: Coloniality, Knowledge and Migration is one of the 5x5x5 schools programme events of Manifesta.
This cross-continental Summer School considers how the coloniality of power relates to regional discursive formulations of the ‘Mediterranean’, the ‘Middle East’ and ‘Africa’. Through collective reading sessions connected remotely from Mauritius, Doha, Syria and Palestine to Palermo, we interrogate the idea of a linear development of thought and consider practices in the south that try to deterritorialize these constructed and militarized regional identities.
