Silence, Wissen und Machtstrukturen
Vortrag von Emily Ngubia Kessé
online – Anmeldung
“The academic centre is not a neutral location. It is a white space where Black people have been denied the privilege to speak.” (Kilomba, 2010; 27)
Knowledge has always had an agenda – to sustain power relations. To whose advantage? – But how do epistemologies achieve this agenda? Translated to the field of neuroscience, I would like to focus on how practices of silencing contribute to the stabilization and maintenance of power and domination relations in the processes of knowledge production and transfer. I hope to make visible the (colonial) racist norms that are invisible to many members of the majority population.
Emily Ngubia Kessé, Dr. rer. med. extends research addressing the challenge of investigating socially constructed categories in science. She investigates how the categories of race & gender shape the ‘doing’ of new bio-tech research and in the production of bio-objects. In addition to her academic work, she is skilled & interested in establishing networks between public and private sectors, working between diverse disciplinary focuses that require innovative/creative engagement.
