In this event, we will explore various competing conceptions of revolution through exploring topics including Ghana's independence, anti-racist curricular and the African-American freedom struggle. The breadth and level of expertise of this panel promises a diverse and nuanced discussion,with something to interest all.  The event will be hosted by Susmita Dave (people for womxn* in philosophy) and Emma Weitzmann (Oxford PPE Society), and is a collaboration of these two networks. It forms part of people for womxn* in philosophy's lecture series on "Theories of (Non)violent Revolutions". This series aims to address publicly and commonly entertained contradictions in the revolutionary topic of each panel and engage us all in critical enquiry. pwip's broader concern covers the violence inflicted by uncritical thought and how (non)violence is spoken about and enacted surrounding revolutions and revolutionary thought. All are welcome to attend, whether or not you are affiliated with the University of Oxford. If you have any questions or further access requirements, please contact us via Facebook.
