RESOURCE: Unsettling Knowledge Inequities

The Knowledge Equity Lab, in partnership with SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), has launched a new podcast series, Unsettling Knowledge Inequities. The series explores “issues related to the politics of knowledge production, exchange and circulation and the structural, global power dynamics that shape it.”

About the series:

What do equitable systems for creating & sharing knowledge look like? Which types of knowledge are valued? Which are excluded? Who decides? These are some of the questions that will be explored in our inaugural 5 part series with knowledge holders from Canada, Peru, Nigeria, Uganda, USA, and more. New episodes will launch every Tuesday between February 23 and March 23, 2021.

The episodes cover a range of topics, including: knowledge equity and social justice, decolonial education and the centering of Indigenous knowledge systems and the revitalization of Indigenous languages, and the use of community research, political base-building, culture-shifting art, and digital security to end the oppression of caste apartheid, Islamophobia, white supremacy, and religious intolerance in both the diaspora and the South Asian subcontinent.

This podcast is produced by Safa Shahkhalili from the Rethinking Development podcast and studio. It should be of interest to DH library folks interested in questions of equitable and anti-colonial knowledge production.
