Talk by Prof Saurabh Sinha

Posted on February 15, 2018

You are invited to a joint event by EBIT and NAS on ‘Decolonisation of Knowledge’ by Prof Saurabh Sinha, 

In 2015 and 2016, South Africa saw nationwide protests catalysed by the #FeesMustFall movement. Among others, the call for 'decolonisation of knowledge' surfaced and arguments for and against this topic actively emerged within Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) communities.

In this talk, Prof Sinha, will relate Engineering, Engineering Education and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Supported with actionable steps, the talk will then bring about an integrated approach, define and contextualize the call for decolonisation of knowledge.
