In Memory of Anton Wilhelm Amo

Genealogies of Decolonization and Tasks of Decoloniality in the 21st Century

The ANTON WILHELM AMO LECTURES have been organised annually since 2013 at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg by the Research Clusters “Society and Culture in Motion” and “Enlightenment, Religion, Knowledge”. They feature internationally acclaimed scholars presenting their ongoing research on themes connected to or emanating from the work of Amo. The AMO LECTURES draw inspiration from Jacques Derrida’s concept “under erasure”, crossing out a word while keeping it legible in order to signal its inadequate yet necessary nature: they use the academic format of a “Lecture” named in honour of Amo while putting the term under erasure in order to highlight its ambiguous existence as both the means for critical reflection and – metonymically standing in for the Western epistemic formation itself – the potential object of such critique.
