The World Studies Interdisciplinary Project presents the opening event of its Decolonial Global Studies Initiative, "Gender, Global Violence, and the Killing Power of Neocolonial Narratives: How Can Higher Ed Change the Frame?"
Founding Director of International Civil Society Action Network & peace strategist Sanam Naraghi-Anderlini will be in conversation with Professor Omar Dahi (Acting Dean, Hampshire College, and founder of Security in Context, SiC). The discussion will center on Sanam’s and Omar's shared interests in redefining “security” and in moving paradigms of global politics away from neocolonial imaginaries of war and toward imaginaries of peace, justice, health, and well-being. After outlining their work in the field and describing how it is impeded by Eurocentric, androcentric narratives, they will address how Higher Ed practices and curricula can transform these norms.
Naraghi-Anderlini is a feminist activist with connections to a wide range of organizations and whose own initiatives support women peace activists embedded in battle zones around the world. She is founding director of ICAN and founding director of the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at London School of Economics.
