Please join us for an online conference featuring presentations and a roundtable discussion with Nadia Yala Kisukidi (Paris 8); Paulin J. Hountondji (National University Benin) and Souleymane Bachir Diagne (Columbia University). Bringing together three highly distinguished researchers within the field of Africana philosophy, the presentations and discussion will focus on the themes of a decolonial reclamation of universality – often presumed to be simply a eurocentric feature of traditional “Western” philosophy – and the associated decolonization of academia.
