IDCE and Human Geography to Host Workshop on “Decolonizing Academic Communicative Praxis”

On April 9 and 10, Clark University’s IDCE Department and Human Geography—a New Radical Journal will present “Words That Remake Life,” an interdisciplinary workspace on “decolonizing academic communicative praxis.”

Quick: what exactly does that mean? Just kidding: the event sounds too creative, ambitious and inclusive to be captured in a dozen words. But the organizers point to a need to work towards “the direct decolonization of academic conferences and workshops” and to consider other “modes of knowing,” including storytelling, poetry, film, dance, music, and theater.

The event is free and open to the public, and takes place in the Fireside Lounge in Dana Commons on the Clark University campus. For more information, please contact Professor Amber Murrey (amurrey@clarku.edu) or visit the event’s Facebook page.
