Russia and the Caucasus Regional Research (RUCARR) SEMINAR Spring 2018

Presenter: Prof. Madina Tlostanova, Linköping University, Department of Thematic Studies.

The seminar will focus on the trajectories of  Caucasian identities, sensibilities and subjectivities  in modernity/coloniality - Russian/Soviet/post-Soviet/global (neo)liberal. Starting and departing from the core decolonial concepts such as coloniality of being, of knowledge, of gender, of sensing, the geopolitics and corpo-politics of knowledge, the decolonial aesthesis, and re-existence, we will reflect on how they are rethought and remade in art and/as activism of the contemporary Caucasus (and particularly in the works of Dagestani artist Taus Makhacheva and Chechen artist Aslan Gaisumov), and what is the potential liberating role of art and artivism in decolonization of knowledge, being, sensing and gender in the Caucasus.
