Online event

Moderator: Cristiano Gianolla (CES)

Since June 2020, protest actions centred on interventions on cultural heritage have intensified as a result of the mobilisations emerging from the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States of America, and which have resonated in several countries. This roundtable will analyse how these actions reinforce existing decolonisation trajectories in relation to cultural heritage and help rethink current challenges. Ample time will be devoted to debate with the public.

Speakers: Lorena Sancho Querol (CES), Márcia Chuva (UNIRIO), Maria Paula Meneses (CES) and Paulo Peixoto (CES/FEUC).

This event marks the return of the "Constructing  the Epistemologies of the South" series, organised by the CES research group alice-ES, after the interruption due to the pandemic.
