Felwine Sarr Decolonization and International Development, is it possible?
 
 https://www.facebook.com/events/144817474278869 

The Canadian Association for the Study of International Development (CASID) is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for our 2021 Conference will be the renowned Senegalese philosopher, economist, and musician–Professor Felwine Sarr, Duke University. In discussion with Rwando-Canadian scholar Jeanne-Marie Rugira, Université du Québec à Rimouski, Dr. Sarr will present his work on African imaginaries and decolonizing International Development Studies from a Senegalese perspective. Challenging us to decolonize our minds when we think about the very idea of ‘development’—as detailed in his widely acclaimed book Afrotopia (2016) —Sarr draws on Africa’s rich and varied philosophies, cultures and economies to broaden our collective horizon. Sarr challenges the idea that Africa is falling behind and is in need of ‘development.’ Instead, informed by various imaginaries of the possible, he offers a radically new way of envisioning the African continent’s future to reclaim its diverse heritages and values, and creatively mobilize the potential and resources of its people.

***The event will be bilingual, with automatic translation in English***
