Knowledge is power, but who has the authority to claim knowledge? In the dispositions of our world the answer is hidden in unseen conditions of inequalities that have a long (colonial) history. Does the digital age bring opportunities to democratise knowledge production? And can we translate this in academic publication practices?
Brill Publishers, Voice4Thought, LeidenASA & The African Studies Centre Leiden are pleased to invite you to the meeting ‘Decolonisation of knowledge in the digital age’ which will be held on 7 June 2018 (18.30-22.15 hrs), at the Impact Hub Amsterdam, located at the KIT – Royal Tropical Institute.
The meeting will launch Bridging Humanities, a new Open Access academic publishing platform that aims to experiment with research carried out in co-creation and based on digital multimedia methodologies. It is open to those interested in experimenting with multimedia e-publishing, co-creation and science-art collaboration, usage of digital technologies, critical reflection of academia and eradication of inequalities in knowledge production.
The meeting aims to connect researchers, journalists, artists and publishers in joint thinking about how digitalisation can facilitate more equal and transparent knowledge processes. Bridging Humanities is a joint initiative of Brill Publishers, the Voice4Thought Foundation and LeidenASA.
