Department of Political Science


Political Theory Colloquium: Shuk Ying Chan (Oxford, Politics)

14 December 2021, 2:00 pm–4:00 pm


Shuk Ying Chan is a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow at Nuffield College and the Department of Politics and International Relations at Oxford University. Her main research interests include contemporary political thought; 20th century anticolonial thought; theories of global justice; theories of empire and race; postcolonial political theory and theories of individual and collective self-determination. Her book project, Postcolonial Global Justice, explores the moral and political implications of decolonization as an unfinished project of global justice. In it, she develops an account of “postcolonial global justice” by drawing on the normative visions and political programs of anticolonial thinkers in the era of formal decolonization. Prior to Oxford, she completed a PhD in political theory at Princeton University. She also holds an M.Phil in political theory and a B.A. in history and politics from the University of Hong Kong. From January 2023 she will be a Lecturer/Assistant Professor in Political Theory in the Department of Political Science at University College London.

This event is free.
