Adom Getachew is Professor of Political Science and Race, Diaspora & Indigeneity at the University of Chicago. In this seminar, Getachew will present her book Worldmaking after Empire: The Rise and Fall of Self-Determination.
In her book, she argues that the struggle for self-determination during decolonisation was not merely about nation-building, but about worldmaking. She provides us with insight into African intellectuals’ visions of another global order, beyond that of Western Imperialism.
The seminar will be moderated by Thorvald Gran, professor emeritus in political science (University of Bergen).
