Postcolonial Perspectives from the Global South

The public forum “Postcolonial Perspectives from the Global South” brought together curators, sociologists and historians from South America, Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia. They explored the various trajectories of modernity as understood and experienced from a range of philosophical, cultural, and historical perspectives. The presentations not only examined Eurocentric claims of universality but also looked in-depth at perspectives that focus on global particularism and cultural relativism.
