Minna Salami: Feminist Analysis, Critique, and Imagination in Contemporary African-European-Afropolitan Thought: A Kaleidoscopic Encounter

What does it mean to know? This lecture explores the intersections between knowledge, feminism, analysis, critique, and imagination within contemporary African-European-Afropolitan discourse. Through a multidimensional lens, the lecture delves into the revelations that feminist perspectives, critical inquiry, and visionary imagination expose across diverse cultural landscapes and intellectual traditions. Analysing power, knowledge, and language, the lecture offers a rigorous feminist critique of dominant narratives and epistemic hierarchies within African-European-Afropolitan thought. It also plants seeds for an alternate, nondualist political philosophy to flourish amidst the dominant europatriarchal social imagination. By exploring the converging and diverging brocades of feminist analysis, critique, and imagination, the lecture invites participants to engage with the complexities of contemporary knowledge production, challenging accepted methodologies and fostering transformative dialogue across cultural, geographical, and disciplinary boundaries: A kaleidoscopic encounter.

Minna Salami is a Nigerian-Finnish and Swedish feminist author, social critic and Program Chair at THE NEW INSTITUTE. She is the author of Can Feminism Be African? (forthcoming William Collins) and Sensuous Knowledge: A Black Feminist Approach for Everyone (Bloomsbury 2020). She is a co-author of the children’s book The Power Book: What is it, Who Has it, and Why? (Quarto, 2019). Her books and essays are translated into German, Spanish, Finnish, Swedish, Portuguese, Mandarin, and Catalan. Minna has drawn over a million readers to her award-winning blog, Her writing can be found in the Guardian, Project Syndicate, Al Jazeera, and The Philosopher, among others.
