Knowledge Production in/on Central Asia: Forms, Purposes, Practices. International Conference.

Ouvert au grand public

+ Mixte

What does it mean, to produce knowledge about a region? Who is generating this knowledge, where, and to what ends? What are the implications and the effects of these practices?

The Fribourg 2022 conference, in collaboration with the Central Asian Studies Network in Germany (CASNiG), aims to inquire into the forms of knowledge being produced in and about Central Asia.

By bringing together a broad range of disciplines and expertises, we strive to adequately reflect the field’s growing richness and heterogeneity, and to carry on the fruitful conversations initiated by similar recent endeavours.

The conference will prioritise “decolonising” the field - giving space to Central Asian voices, and promoting critical reflections on the positionalities, practices and interactions of scholars and experts working in/on the region.
