Migrations of Knowledge: Potentials and Limits of Knowledge Production and Critique in Europe and Africa
3 – 6 December 2014,
Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, Germany
The conference addresses current conditions and modes of academic knowledge production in order to revisit the ethical, political and social visions of research and higher education articulated in the second half of the 20th century at European and African universities. Researchers will scrutinize the academic discourses on the geopolitics of knowledge, gender and ethnicity, critical dialogues between the social, cultural and engineering sciences as well as the differences of and interactions between epistemologies in the Global North and the Global South.
