Colloquium, Workshop

Workshop: "Feeling, Memorializing, Knowing. Queer*ing Research Practices"

One-day hybrid workshop with scholar and writer Anima Adjepong

Dr. Anima Adjepong is a writer, founder and inaugural executive director of Silent Majority, Ghana, and associate professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Cincinnati (U.S.A.). Their work explores themes of embodiment, belonging, freedom, and what we owe to one another.

The one-day hybrid workshop, facilitated by the scholar and writer Anima Adjepong, invites us into a practice of queer*ing and strategically interrupting our methodological approaches and perspectives. Inspired by their work on erotic ethnography as “a more ethical, mind-full and human-centered approach”, the co-created space uses the erotic as a necessary tool to decenter normative ways of producing knowledge and develop collective practices for critical self-reflexivity in our research and activist engagements.

Convenors: Dr. Serena Owusua Dankwa (Institute of Social Anthropology, University of Basel) and Dr. Dag Henrichsen (BAB & Centre for African Studies, University of Basel).
