Trailer: Decolonial Thinking with Prof. Dr. Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni

In this 11-part SMUS interview series Prof. Dr. Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni, Professor and Chair of Epistemologies of the Global South with Emphasis on Africa at the University of Bayreuth introduces viewers to the topic of decolonisation.

Professor Ndlovu-Gatsheni is a leading decolonial theorist with over a hundred publications in the fields of African history, African politics, African development and decolonial theory and we are delighted that he took the time to work with us on this series where he shares his thoughts, on topics ranging from “How does one colonize being human itself“? to “Why is there a need for structural, epistemic and personal decolonisation“?

This interview series provides a framework for an upcoming SMUS interview/podcast series which aims to highlight and reclaim other ways of knowing (the decolonisation of epistemologies).
