Seminar of Postcolonial Studies

This Seminar establishes a dialogue with the past, not merely textual and theoretical, calling and convening real voices to help us connect with colonial experiences and their reflection in the postcolonial era of our global societies. The Seminar on Postcolonial Studies draws its roots from a civic and ethical duty of memory, based on an intercultural dynamic and stems from a partnership between the CECS and the Master’s Degree in Sociology of the University of Minho.

Coordination | Vítor de Sousa and Sheila Khan
