      Campus Events

      Engaging with Decoloniality as Students and Researchers

      Thursday, March 3, 3:30-5PM

       REGISTER HERE

      Join PDPA and BU URBAN in welcoming Dr. Josué R. López who will guide a conversation for PhDs and Postdocs around engaging with decoloniality with a reflection on the decolonization of our research projects and our experiences. During this two-part event, Dr. López will first share his experience in understanding decoloniality in his research and doctoral studies more broadly. In the interactive second half of the 90-minute session, participants will be split into breakout rooms for guided reflections on how their own experiences affect and relate to decolonization, considering how that knowledge can be used to impact our research and our disciplines. 

      Questions this discussion will address are: 

      • How does decolonization inform our paths? 
      • How are our own experiences, identities, and geographies related to broader goals of decolonization and decoloniality? 
      • How can we express decolonial commitments in our doctoral studies? 

      We encourage those interested in learning from Dr. López’s experience to join us for the first part of the session, even if they are unable to stay for the interactive workshop in the second part. This event is generously co-sponsored by the Newbury Center.

      BU Hillel: If you need a little stress relief come by at 213 Bay State Road on Wednesday, March 2nd from 4-6 pm to play with dogs and puppies.

      BU COM Direct: Women and nonbinary roundtable on Tuesday, March 1st from 5-6 pm at CAS 213.
