Decolonial Peace Education for Social Change
Start Date: 1/27/2021Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 1/27/2021End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description
As a decolonial endeavor, this project is an amalgam of research, activism, and intervention. Dr. Williams has merged theories on dynamical systems, decoloniality, and critical peace education to highlight the structures, processes, and policies that maintain a colonially constituted time warp in Trinidad’s educational system. As a possible way to destabilize this warp, Dr. Williams has been piloting a Systemic Restorative Praxis as a form of decolonial peace education. This praxis proposes combining critical historical reflection with restorative, healing practices, as a necessary step in de-linking from systems of oppression, and re-envisioning and enacting sustainable, radically alternative, community-based social change.

Dr. Hakim Mohandas Amani Williams, a native of Laventille, Trinidad & Tobago, is Associate Professor of Africana Studies, Director of Peace and Justice Studies, and faculty affiliate in Education, Globalization Studies, and Public Policy at Gettysburg College (Pennsylvania, USA).
