Interdisciplinary Dialogue on Decolonizing Academia
The event explored how coloniality influences knowledge production within academia and what alternatives exist to end the reproduction dynamics of injustice within our own research practices. Two key experts; Dr. Noa K. Ha, acting Scientific Director at the Deutsche Zentrum für Integrations- und Migrationsforschung (DeZIM) and Dr. Antony Pattathu, founding member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Global South Studies at Tübingen University, highlighted examples from their work to open the dialogue on current challenges and future opportunities.
