How do postcolonialism and decolonialism help us think through our current political moment? How have these two approaches addressed, or failed to address, Islam and the Middle East? How can they inform our current discussions about immigration? What methods do postcolonialism and decolonialism offer for scholarship and activism during this time? How do they respond to the rise of the global right? Panelists will discuss these issues
