Decolonial Practices Group

The Decolonial Practices Group are a group based primarily at the Rachel Carson Center, comprising of academics at various stages in their careers, including PhD and master's students. Their focus extends beyond the theoretical realms to actively engage in decolonization efforts through praxis-oriented approaches. They are united by their commitment against all forms of oppression and strive to be more than just a discussion forum; the group's goal is to actively organize, motivate, and engage in meaningful actions. They facilitate and participate in various initiatives that promote the process of decolonisation. The Decolonial Practices Group is a space where theory meets action, driving tangible change, and fostering a deeper understanding of decolonial practices.

Upcoming Events

The Land Beneath Our Feet follows a young Liberian man, uprooted by war, who returns from the USA with never-before-seen footage of Liberia’s past. The uncovered footage is embraced as a national treasure. Depicting a 1926 corporate land grab, it is also an explosive reminder of eroding land rights. In post-conflict Liberia, individuals and communities are pitted against multinational corporations, the government, and each other in life-threatening disputes over land. What can this ghostly footage offer a nation, as it debates radical land reforms that could empower communities to shape a more diverse, stable and sustainable future?
