In February 2022, the IIS elective course Afro-Dutch Studies will begin at the University of Amsterdam, a decolonial course developed and taught by Landecker Senior Fellow Zawdie Sandvliet.
In a news article published by the University of Amsterdam, Zawdie answers three critical questions about the importance of this interdisciplinary field:
- For which students is this course intended?
- What makes the subject ‘decolonial’?
- How is the course structured?
To read his answers, find out more about the course on this University of Amsterdam page (in Dutch).
Zawdie is one of thirty 2020-2021 Landecker Democracy Fellows. This fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundation and Humanity in Action, was created to strengthen a new generation of leaders whose approaches to political and social challenges can become catalysts for democratic placemaking and community building.
