Nabila Tavolieri

Nabila Tavolieri is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Human and Social Sciences at the University of Naples L’Orientale. She is investigating, experimenting with an undisciplined approach, the articulation between communitarian urban movements, cultural politics, and popular education in Bogotà, Colombia. For her research, she has been engaging and conspiring with alternative educational and communitarian projects to understand how a decolonial rethinking of traditional education can be envisioned. She completed her master’s degree in Cultural Mediation at the same university, specializing in Literary Criticism and Comparative Literature, with a thesis focused on radical black female ‘thought-praxis’ and Afro-diasporic artistic experimentations. Given her diverse academic background, she is particularly interested in employing a multidisciplinary theoretical and critical framework, encompassing Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies, Critical and Popular Education Theories, Cultural Studies, Feminist Philosophies and Black Radical Thought.
