Theorization and the Global South

Berlin Notes
Critiquing the colonialist, imperialist, and Eurocentric perspectives that have historically impacted knowledge production about the so-called Global South, the discussion will delve into a reflection on the historical and geopolitical inequalities that have shaped theorization. The recently published volume, Displacing Theory Through the Global South, a collection of essays by Berlin-based scholars, edited by Iracema Dulley and Özgün Eylül İşcen, proposes a commitment to expanding notions of universality, making theorization not only relevant and generative, but ultimately, transformative. A staged reading by Iracema Dulley and Juliana Streva will start off the discussion. Followed by a Q&A with the audience.
