“As young female scholars coming from the Balkans, we have often been subjected to pedagogical politics on what and how we should research our own region, and how we should navigate our supposed innate biases so that we can make our academic work ‘legitimate’ and ‘objective’.”
Anyone know of any similar initiatives in academia? Especially in tech?
@aral Sure thing! A few good friends are involved in that project. Incidentally, they're from ex-Yugoslavian countries too — I'm sure there's a good lesson on socialism and solidarity in there somewhere. :)
@hyde Worldwide. Heck, if in Ireland (where I live), even better. Would love to get more involved in education again – especially with the stuff we’re about to release on small-web.org – but not with any university departments that are in the pocket of Silicon Valley.
