Category: Provincializing Epistemologies

The central aim of “Provincializing Epistemologies” is to foster a sustained conversation to politicize and contest the epistemological hegemony of particular kinds of knowledge formations that systematically exclude non-European archives. This discussion series is designed as a productive and exploratory exercise to disclose hegemonic research paradigms and practices and to simultaneously reflect on epistemological openings. “Provincializing Epistemologies” pursues a set of events and conversations held at the Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies (Freie Universtität Berlin) since 2013.
