Event Description

Knowledge democracy is a discourse that has emerged over the past 10 years in response to many challenges facing higher education institutions: Calls for decolonisation of higher education, Indigenisation of higher education, breaking down the walls of white classist Eurocentric disciplinary knowledge, co-construction of knowledges with and for communities, facing the climate crisis and, of course, responding to the pandemic. Budd Hall and his colleague Rajesh Tandon @RTandon_PRIA from India, in their roles as Co-Chairs of the UNESCO Chair in Community-Based Research and Social Responsibility in Higher Education @UNESCOchairCBR, are contributing to discussions around the world on the radical transformations that higher education might be able to imagine. Join Budd Hall for a lively and interactive String it Together conversation about epistemicide, excluded knowledges, change and hope within a context of higher.
