This research programme seeks to take stock of various forms of local knowledge around the world in a range of domains (cultural heritage, healing, environment, etc.). The programme will pursue this through:
1) a funding call (open to Queen Mary University of London staff and PhD Students to carry out own research),
2) a series of conversations (exploring indigenous and non-anthropomorphic forms of knowledge and decolonising global cultural heritage),
3) developing large-scale research grants (“Local Experiences of Early Cinema in the British Colonies” and “Colonialism in Highschool Education around the World”).
The programme is headed by Dr Mario Slugan.
