We will be discussing the first two chapters of Silvia Tamale’s Decolonization and Afro-Feminism.


A blurb describing the book:

“In this extraordinary and erudite book, Sylvia Tamale, the distinguished Ugandan scholar and public intellectual, brilliantly dissects and demolishes the dangerous tropes of coloniality that distort our understanding of African societies, cultures, bodies, institutions, experiences, social relations, and realities. She unsparingly and compellingly advances the analytical power and
emancipatory possibilities of decolonial feminism. Using the concept of intersectionality she moves seamlessly and examines with a sense of fierce urgency the decolonial project over a wide range of spheres from ecofeminism to sports, the law, religion, human rights, Ubuntu, the academy, family relations, Pan- Africanism, and big data. A must read for all those who value the decolonization of Eurocentric and androcentric knowledges and the recentering of African epistemologies and ontologies. It is a clarion call for the continent’s feminist epistemic liberation.”
— Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, Professor of the Humanities and Social Sciences and Vice Chancellor, United States International University-Africa, Nairobi, Kenya
