Decolonizing Political Economy: Transforming the University

Saturday 19 October 10:30am – 4:00pm
King’s College London, Bush House, Strand Campus, London WC2B 4BG

This one-day workshop, organised by the Decolonizing Political Economy working group at King’s College London, is the first of a series that will address the question of how to pursue a truly decolonized education. The first panel will bring together academics and students from across King’s to reflect on the work that has already been done, and the strategies and challenges faced by movements to decolonize across the university. The second panel will bring these conversations together to examine the question of what is to be done at King’s going forward? How best can we collaborate to radically transform our university?
