Decolonial Research Group
The decolonial research group offers a platform for discussing the legacies of colonialism from ethical, sociotechnical, literary, and cultural perspectives. Bringing together researchers across NTNU, this network does truly transdisciplinary work across the Humanities and the Social Sciences. Our background and motivation for setting up this research group is our shared work on diversity and inclusion; this includes a wider focus on questions of race and indigeneity, ethics, knowledge and sustainability, emotions, and subjectivity. As the attention to Norway’s own colonial history intensifies, it is important that NTNU has a forum in which domestic indigenous issues might be explored in a global context.
