Working Group 'Decolonise Anthropology'; Tübingen

The working group 'Decolonise Anthropology' is located at the Department of social and cultural anthropology. We investigate the connections between Western knowledge systems/value systems and colonial systems of thought and practices; in our discipline we work on the decolonization of curricula and contents. The working group meets regularly. Contact persons are Gabriele Alex and Antony Pattathu.
