Event Information

Open to







Leda Kamenopoulou

This event will explore the necessity of diversifying knowledge to be more inclusive of voices and contexts underrepresented in mainstream Northern literature, research, and curricula. 

Leda will argue that to diversify what we teach, we first need to diversify what we know and to accept that the North has a lot to learn from the South.

This online event will be particularly useful for those interested in decolonisation, equity and social justice, diversity and inclusion, co-production, and underrepresented voices in academia.

Epistemic Justice seminar series

This series aims to help attendees challenge the existing power imbalances in knowledge production and sharing, by reflecting on our curricula, teaching practice, and research.  An exciting line-up of invited speakers will share their work on promoting decolonisation, equity, social justice, diversity and inclusion in academia.
