Souleymane Bachir Diagne is a philosopher based at Columbia University. His talk will refect on a new co-authored dialogue between himself and the Africanist anthropologist Jean-Loup Amselle, In Search of Africa(s) : Universalism and Decolonial Thought (2020).
The Other Universals consortium will be hosting a series of online seminars over the next few months. These talks will draw on political and aesthetic archives of emancipatory projects of the global south. They will examine radical traditions and ideas of expansive citizenship that have emerged in the colonial and postcolonial modern. Particular focus will be on idioms of difference, which defne insider and outsider, majority and minority, how these emerged, were negotiated and transcended.
