Decolonising Design within Colonised Worlds

Talhouk, R. R. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation

Description

Nowadays in every academic circle I am in the topic of Decolonising Design, Technologies and Human-Computer Interaction is bound to come up. But what does it mean to do decolonial work in persistent colonised spaces? What does it mean to be a decolonised being, technology and practice? Drawing from my own research, experiences and decolonial thinkers I hope that during this talk we can reflect together on how we decolonise our ways of being and research within humanitarian, universities and community spaces. The talk is in no means a step-by-step guide, nor is it coming from a position of expertise. Rather it constitutes experiences of struggle, pain and aspiration within the spaces in which my research and myself exist that I hope we can hold together in sadness, creativity and activism.
