Project —

During my stay at Faber Residency, I will work on the article “Science, emancipation and the variety of forms of knowledge: a decolonial feminist proposal of knowledges” to critically examine the hegemonic scientific discourse and open the debate to include non-western, non-capitalist, non-scientific knowledges, cosmovisions and epistemologies, currently ignored by the scientific discourse, in order to widen the horizon of possibilities for a more just, democratic and sustainable futures. In particular, at Faber Residency I intend to explore the link between science and feminism from a non-modernist and decolonial approach. I am also looking forward to experimentation, learning and discussions with all the Faber residents.
