Is The University Colonial?: Critical Conversations On Its Present

Monday, November 30, 2020
12:00pm – 1:30pm

Storrs Campus

In this three-part series, the University of Connecticut's Office of Global Affairs and University of Nottingham’s Institute for Policy and Engagement will be hosting three online panel discussions, each with a focus on decolonizing education. Speakers will examine the role that universities have had in cultivating racism and (settler) colonialism, the present challenges they face in disbanding unequal and oppressive narratives, as well as the future opportunities to contribute meaningfully to an anti-racist and anti-colonial agenda. This second session will consider the present with experts debating the current role of a university in cultivating inequalities. The panelists will each have 10 minutes to provide remarks, followed by 50 minute Q&A discussion. Register via:
