Event details of Final class “Post-Colonial Encounters in Arts and Culture”
Date 26 May 2023
Time 13:00 -15:00
Location Bushuis/Oost-Indisch Huis
Room VOC-zaal

Taking their cue from Gayatri Spivak’s essay “Can the Subaltern Speak?” they think about the ways in which art and literature can put ignored or unheard voices central and how they as students relate to the study material. We also discuss what it means to do post- and decolonial work in a building like the Bushuis. Which obligations come with the location and its history, and how can we act accordingly?
