Interdisciplinary Symposium: Decolonial Imaginaries in Literary and Urban Studies, 9-10 November, University of Basel

The collaborative, interdisciplinary two-day symposium “Decolonial Imaginaries in Literary and Urban Studies” will bring urban and literary scholars into conversation with each other in an open, exploratory discussion. In addition to presenting papers and attending workshops in both fields, participants will have the chance to attend two keynote lectures by Dominic Davies (a literary scholar working on the imagination of infrastructure and infrastructural violence) and Catalina Ortiz (an urbanist working on radical spatial imagination at the intersection of informality, urban heritage and urban learning), as well as a conversation with critically acclaimed author Ana Filomena Amaral about her 2019 novel Chasing Walls.
