Radical Sunday School: Film screening and discussion on Criminalization and Migration. “Tell me, Europa” (Merel Groels)

Short url: 


Unbubble Academia will organise an event about topics of migration and criminalization. The visual ethnographist Merel Groels will share her film called "Tell me, Europa", in which she explores the criminalization of people who help refugees on the island of Lesbos, Greece. After the film screening, there shall be an open dialogue between Merel, other academics working on Migration, and everyone else who would like to join.

"Unbubble Academia" strives to bring information and knowledge from the academic bubble, to a broader public, and to make knowledge co-production accessible to everyone.

Radical Sunday School: as students are protesting the university, calling for the democratisation, decarbonisation, and decolonisation of their education, the Radical Sunday School is opening weekly to discuss the failings of our current educational system and imagine new ways to learn. As Paulo Freire believed, education can be an emancipatory tool, liberating consciousness, and widen the options for action - and of course, it can take place anywhere, and at any time. In this 'school', everyone, students and not-students, is invited to participate. We will decide on the content and form freely. The options for things to discuss are endless: What is the point of today's educational system? What is it promising, what does it deliver? How is it funded? What counts as education? What would an abolition of the university entail? How do you actually decolonise education? Or democratise it? What is the history of the university? How do fossil fuels inform our beliefs on learning? Let's follow whatever sounds interesting and worthwhile - whatever seems important enough to be learned.
