Critical theory tends to complicate our research practices to such an extent that it may raise anxieties as to what we are left with to work with. To provide some guidance on this, ESOC has organized a workshop in collaboration with the Engaging Public Issues master track and Zuleika Sheik, researcher at Erasmus International Institute of Social Sciences, who is specialized in combatting the question on how to adequately and respectfully practice intersectionality within current academic paradigms. Her current research addresses the experiences of women of colour in Dutch academia in relation to epistemic diversity. Her research interests include decoloniality, postcolonial theory, cultural studies, development studies, gender, racism and qualitative research methods.

The workshop took place on the 10th of March, at 13:00.
