This meeting is part of a series of events from Dall’Oltremare al Sud Globale. L’Università di Padova dalla colonizzazione all’azione globale per lo sviluppo (From Overseas to the Global South. The University of Padua from colonization to global action for development). Organized by the University of Padua, the event is part of the 800th Anniversary Celebrations.

Despite the discrediting racist theories, as Europeans began investing in developing a new ruling class, the cultural paradigm of colonial areas changed slowly. The University of Padua was a leader in the Italian training experience of post-colonialism from 1950 to 1970.
Including the relationship with, for better or worse, The University of Mogadishu.
The disciplines reflect the transformation affecting post-colonial societies and the first forms of cooperation, reflecting on the idea of development based on infrastructural and industrial development.
Classrooms grew with students interested in studying Medicine and Law, including the first female students, from India, the Middle East, Africa to study Medicine and Law.
The global changes that occurred in 1968 affected the European university system. The end of the post-war expansion led to the crisis of the 1970s, and the growth of developing countries fell.

Speaker from the University of Padua includes Elena Calandri – Professor of History of International Relations at the Department of Political, Legal, and International Studies, Andrea Gattini Dipartimento di Diritto Pubblico, Internazionale e Comunitario (DIPIC), Alice Leone student of the Department of Political Science, Law, and International Studies (online), Mario Zangrando Medici with Africa Cuamm (online), Giordana Canova University of Padua.

Events from the Dall’Oltremare al Sud Globale. L’Università di Padova dalla colonizzazione all’azione globale per lo sviluppo series (90 min. each) take place in-person within University museum spaces and can be viewed online.  Using videos, images, and testimonies, the series uncovers how the University, and other scholars, have contributed to shaping the relationships and perspectives between Italy and the global regions of Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Oceania. Events discuss an array of ideas including those, from the Enlightenment to colonization; Imperialism to decolonization; and the transformation of North-South relations to today’s global interdependence. The series aims to illustrate how the scientific and humanities disciplines within universities and institutions have held not only powerful political tools and mirrors, but how they have elaborated the thoughts and cultural principles of their time. Far from being neutral, they have played a role in the construction, in darkness and light, of global humanity.

Before the event it is possible to take part in the guided tour of the Geography Museum by Giovanni Donadelli, at 3 p.m.

The event is held in presence and is also streamed live. To participate in presence, registration is required.
