Decolonizing Europe: History, Memory, Redress (with the Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice at Brown University) (VU Amsterdam Summer School)

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Certificate / Diploma Summer course Amsterdam

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary Take a fresh approach to current debates surrounding notions of citizenship and belonging within postcolonial, post-Cold War Europe.
Course description This course focuses on the works of Caribbean and African diasporic thinkers: scholars, writers and artists who have engaged critically with European intellectual traditions, formulating distinctive positions that constitute an alternative genealogy for questions of citizenship and belonging in Europe. By homing in on their works, you gain a deeper understanding of the global interactions at key historical moments that shaped contemporary Europe. Recent developments in Amsterdam, a city deeply affected by the Holocaust, a long colonial history and the Netherlands relationship with other difficult histories are explored in a program full of engaging meetings and discussions. Decolonizing Europe is offered jointly by the Global History, Heritage and Memory programme at VU Amsterdam and the Center for Slavery and Justice at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island. Its co-organizer is the Research Center for Material Culture of the Dutch National Museum of World Cultures.
