The Decolonial/Postcolonial Working Group started meeting as part of the Accolade Program of the Institute of Advanced Study. We now meet once every two weeks to (re)read important texts on the topic, to talk about the presenter's research, or to discuss developments in the field. Our aim is discuss texts that propose new concepts or approaches in relation to decolonization in different fields.
