This webinar series explores two questions: What does decolonization entail? What strategies might be employed to achieve a decolonized biological anthropology? Our goal is to provide a space where participants can explore the impact that colonial practices have had on biological anthropology, including on our curricula, our practices, and our narratives. To facilitate grounding general topics (e.g. decolonizing curricula, fieldwork, authorship) within regional issues and concerns (e.g. decolonizing African palaeosciences), and with an eye towards incorporating diverse views and perspectives, these webinars will be run across three different global time zones (e.g. New York, Johannesburg, Hong Kong), from July-September.
Co-sponsored by AABA COD-International and COD-TASK
