CoFUTURES partners with MYTHOPOL in arranging the Theory from the Margins consortium webinars. In keeping with the aims of CoFUTURES, especially in engaging with futurisms from the Global South and developing new theory, the webinar series dives into cutting edge theoretical issues across disciplinary boundaries.

About: The Theory from the Margins consortium deep-reads on current scholarship on postcolonial theory, the decolonial turn, and theory building from the Global South. The consortium reads works from marginalised communities in the global North and South and/or critical interventions based on in-depth studies of marginalised groups. Information about forthcoming events as well as recordings of previous events may be accessed from the project website.
