You are cordially invited to the last JFLS of the academic year on Tuesday March 20 at 7:45 in the Upper Library. The topic will be, fittingly for the end of the term, ‘Apocalypse Now.’ Our speakers will link that phrase, broadly defined, to their research.
Chizoba Imoka, PhD candidate in Education, Leadership and Policy, will propose an alternative conception of education using decolonial philosophies and aspirations for a just and liberated Africa and world at large.
Isabel Dzitac, graduate student in History, will explore the extent to which the experience of colonial subjects in the Japanese empire during World War II was apocalyptic.
Boaz Schuman, PhD candidate in Medieval Studies, will uncover and discuss the link between profanity and language logic.
