EPICURtalks N°2

02/03/2021 @ 17:30 - 19:00 CET

The EPICUR Alliance cordially invites you to its second virtual EPICURtalk and discussion on March, 2nd, 2021 at 5:30 pm CET

Teaching European Identities Radio Europe I:
Postcolonial Europe
with Pia Masurczak, Teaching Fellow, University College Freiburg

In her talk, Pia Masurczak will address the outcomes and experiences of her EPICUR-seminar on Postcolonial Europe. Debates about the restitution of African art and artefacts, about the arrival of refugees and migrants, or about systemic racism have (re-)surfaced in many European countries in the past few years. These issues are at least partly connected to the colonial legacy of many European nations and Europe as a whole.

Postcolonial thought offers ways to look at European identities and histories from a different perspective. To explore the ramifications of colonialism, the students of this seminar shared their analyses and discussions in the form of a five-part podcast series that they produced. Each episode discusses a specific aspect of this engagement with colonial legacies. Additionally, the students were able to gain a basic understanding of how to transfer their academic skills to a (new) journalistic format and make their information accessible to a wider, non-academic public.

The EPICURtalks lecture will be followed by a discussion with PD Dr. Miriam Nandi,project manager and lecturer for the EPICUR European Universities Initiative, University College Freiburg. There will be time to network and get to know fellow teachers and lecturers from the eight partner institutions after the official part of the event.

Please RSVP to: k.kiefel@zv.uni-freiburg.de by March 1, 2021. Attendees will receive their zoom link on March 2nd. The event will take approximately an hour.
