Facilitator: Ahmed Ansari

Decolonizing Knowledge Production workshop video link

This workshop aims to introduce designers to foundational concepts, discourses, and issues in decolonizing knowledge, especially as it is produced, disseminated, and taught in the Anglo-European design academy, and within the US. We discuss things like engendering epistemic humility, cosmological perspectivism, and the interpellation of non-Anglo-European ways of knowing and doing, especially with regards to creative material and visual practices, within the classroom and beyond.
