Event description

Description

Decolonizing Research Methods Parts 1-6

These workshops are based on the premise that Western academic research is an activity that occurs in a set of historical, political and social conditions that are tied to colonial and imperial practices.

Taught by an academic lecturer, each workshop involves:

  • Discussion of attitudes, assumptions and motivations that underpin academic study and research practices.
  • Engagement with academic writing produced by peoples who have traditionally been marginalized in Western academia.
  • Analysis of participants’ own values in relation to these contexts.

Part 5: Education

This workshop encourages participants to generate ideas about and reflect on the structure and goal of education, including different roles in the process. In particular, it highlights and interrogates dominant attitudes and practices that form the basis of a ‘good’ education.

Format: A series of six 2-hour interactive workshops.

Available to all students in all years.*

You are welcome to attend individual sessions (e.g. only Part 1, or only Part 2 and Part 5, etc.), although it is beneficial if you are able to attend all workshops.

*Goldsmiths University of London students only. Please register with your @gold.ac.uk email address.
