10th Knowledge Cafè will take place on Thursday 19 November at 15.00 CET on the theme “Uncomfortable truths in development. During this café we will pick up on some of the themes raised in recent discussions in KM4dev related to the decolonization of knowledge.
We will start with a summary of the recent discussions, outlining why this is an important issue for KM4Dev and for global development in general. There are many uncomfortable truths and we will only be able to touch on a few. This knowledge café will also help us to develop the scope of a special issue of the Knowledge Management for Development Journal in 2021.
Speakers and themes at the knowledge cafe will comprise:
- Ann Hendrix-Jenkins – Shared knowledge through hard discussions: can development workers challenge the status quo?
- Kishor Pradhan – Sham of Equality and Dignity in Development
- Stacey Young – We can do better
- Sarah Cummings – Coloniality and wilful hermeneutic ignorance
