9 | Knowledge Production, Education and Epistemic Agendas

Everyday transversal perspectives and transgressive practices stimulate varied and divergent modes of knowledge production. These require critical reflections, discussions, and new approaches for the “What?” and “How?” of education and epistemic agendas. Therefore we invite you to discuss theoretical and conceptual frameworks, as well as case studies and empirical work.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: corporatization of knowledge and exclusion in academia; the politics of open source; democratization and knowledge-production; southern theory; anarchists and dissident education; beyond eurocentric knowledge; radical pedagogies; resistance and education; the role of indigenous knowledge in the academy; participatory action research in teaching, learning and research; practicing solidarities, education and social change; education and justice; challenges of multi-disciplinarity and trans-disciplinarity; co-production of knowledge; value orientations and epistemic agendas; political conditions and consequences of the production and use of knowledge, etc.
