Plural narrations offer a unifying picture of humanity
The EU-funded Minor Universality project is based on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s assertion that a single story leads to misinterpretations. In her TED Talk, the Nigerian writer supported the idea that plural narrations offer a more just and unifying picture of humanity. Talking of the Western Universalism’s impact on cultures, whose concept considers western ideas as universals, the writer underlined the underrepresentation of many cultures. The Minor Universality project aims to contribute to the dialogue on universality after Western universalism. It will study the role narration plays in collective imaginaries and will focus on cultural expressions such as literature, films and social media.
