Anthrobreakfast with Cecilia Salinas – 01/12/2021!

Anthrobreakfast with Cecilia Salinas

SAPU invites you to take a break from your exams and come to our 3rd and final Anthrobreakfast of the semester, this time featuring Postdoctoral fellow Cecilia Salinas!


Cecilia will share some reflections about decolonizing higher education. She has engaged in the public debate of decolonizing academia in Norway since 2018 and the organizer of the Decolonial Thinking reading seminar at SAI from 2017 and throughout 2018. She will explain what coloniality/decoloniality means for Latin-American thinkers, and share some reflections about decolonizing higher education from a personal class, gender and ethnic perspective.

Practical Info

The event will have free breakfast and coffee for attendees, and we will have the space for three hours giving plenty of time for students to ask questions at the end of the presentation and relax with their peers.

The event will be taking place in the “Large Meeting Room” as it is called in the TP system, room 2531. It’s directly behind the cafeteria on the 2nd floor of GS. We will put up some signage to direct people on the 2nd floor. Once the presentation period ends around 10-10:30, Cecilia will have a discussion/Q&A about her work. Afterward, students are able to relax and socialize with fellow students and staff for as long as they like (or until we get kicked out of the room).

Anthrobreakfast is an event run by SAPU where a member of the Department of Social Anthropology (or other affiliate departments) presents their current research interests and an overarching discussion on modern anthropology. It is a casual event where students can hear a short 30-45 minute presentation, discuss, and socialize with each other as well as the speaker. It’s a great opportunity to get to know your fellow students and professors.
