Anton de Kom: Lessons of an Anti-colonial Resistance Fighter

Monday 27 May 2024, 8 pm - 9:30 pm
Dutch lecture and conversation | Radboud Reflects and Radboud Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Office

Who was the Surinamese activist, writer and resistance fighter Anton de Kom (1898 - 1945) and what can we learn from him today? Why did he not only campaign for Surinamese workers, but also in the Netherlands for the Indonesian student movement and ultimately against fascism in World War II? Come hear literary scholar Thalia Ostendorf and philosopher Mathijs van de Sande discuss the ideas of Anton de Kom, his radical solidarity thinking and the question of whether De Kom's activism is less applicable today, or more topical than ever.
