Racialization, colonialism, and epistemic injustice have deep effects in past and present scientific knowledge production practices as well as in the societies these practices emerge from. This lecture series aims to offer new perspectives on these historical processes and the different ways in which they connect to current science and society. The series consists of monthly lectures in which experts in their fields present their work and reflect on the entanglements between their research topics and current societal inequalities. Thus, the objective is twofold: First, attendees to these talks can get in contact with cutting edge research on the effects of racialization, colonialism, and epistemic injustice in scientific knowledge production, especially in the life sciences. Second, it invites speakers and attendees to reflect on how this knowledge can contribute to resolve discrimination, racism, and social inequalities in science and society today.
