Dr. Bernard Forjwuor: "Decolonizing the Discourse of Colonialism"

Dr. Bernard Forjwuor is a visiting assistant teaching professor of Africana studies at the University of Notre Dame.

His research and teaching focus on black political thought, postcolonial political theory, decolonial theory, critical democratic theory, and critical race theory. Currently, Forjwuor is completing a book manuscript entitled, Critique of Political Decolonization, which interrogates ways the colonial, by folding acts of self-governance/selfdetermination into the mechanisms of its undertakings, pre-determines liberal democratic outcomes in postcolonial Africa/Ghana.
