About this Event

Decolonising Social Research Seminar Series

Social research has been complicit in slavery, colonialism and racism, in ways that are more and less visible. Social research has also contributed towards antiracist and decolonising movements and activitism. This SWDTP funded seminar series will explore theoretical and methodological tools for conducting research that is antiracist and decolonising. It will look at how we design and conduct research that disrupts established power relations within research, including those between researcher and researched, expert and novice.

Decolonising Methodology

This seminar will feature examples of methodologies that are participative and privilege the voices (authority and authorship) of those identifying with groups that have historically been objectified by research. Our presenters come from a wide range of disciplines and places around the world (India, Aotearoa New Zealand, Chile, and Colombia). What these presentations have in common is that they do not only encompass an intellectual exercise, but they seek to integrate practice and theory through a wide range of situated and embodied initiatives that are participative, co-produced, arts-based, and integrative. We hope these presentations help expand and challenge traditional understandings of how we come to know our world.
