This presentation examines common sense ideas of modernity in Ghanaian popular culture. It explores the ways popular culture can be used to engender a decolonial consciousness.

As the modernity/coloniality project argues, a decolonization of the senses (through decolonial aetheSis) enables us to “decolonize the subjectivities controlled under the modern imperial aestheTics.”

Directions:

The Marriott Center is located on the 11th floor of the UMass Amherst Campus Center.
