Achille Mbembe: Thinking the World from Africa

In collaboration with the Holberg Prize, Centre for Women’s and Gender Research (SKOK) and the Research Group for Radical Philosophy and Literature invite you all to an open seminar/reading session on this year’s Holberg Prize winner: historian, political theorist and public intellectual Achille Mbembe.

The seminar will give short introductions to key texts and concepts in Mbembe’s thinking and opens for broad discussions on his work at large. Each introduction has attached to it a suggested reading, but all are welcome whether or not they have had time to read the texts.

The seminar will be held in meeting room 904 on the 9th floor in Lauritz Meltzers hus, Fosswinckels gate 6 (Mazemap link) and online. It is free and open for all. We would like online participants to register ahead of the seminar, so go here to register and get the Zoom link for the seminar. In-person attendees do not have to register.
