Lab 6 – Decoloniality: Transforming Research Method for Good
Date: Tuesday, June 13, 2023
Time: 5.00 pm – 6.20 pm
Room: B1.032 E&G McNabb Theatre
This EURAM 2023 LAB will open a window into the discussion of shifting the paradigm to localizing research methods in light of the context for its meaning, potential applications to theory development, teaching, learning, and practice, and identifying region- and country-specific pathways. Although the positivist Cartesian views have dominated the research methods, colonizing the discussions of race, religion/spirituality, gender, social class, and other dimensions of life, this Lab will focus on the significance of decolonizing in terms of autochthonous population research and offer a forum for collegial discussions to usher in decoloniality for good.
