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

May 16 @ 10:00 - 15:00

With Anima Adjepong (University of Cincinnati). Convenors: Serena O. Dankwa (Institute of Social Anthropology, University of Basel) and Dag Henrichsen (BAB & Centre for African Studies, University of Basel)


The one-day hybrid workshop, facilitated by the scholar and writer Anima Adjepong, Associate Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, University of Cincinnati, 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.


The workshop encourages students and scholars from all disciplines and fields as well as creative and curatorial, humanitarian and policy professionals from outside academic institutions to participate. The hybrid format enables participation from beyond the Basel venue. For more information and registration, kindly contact Dag Henrichsen at dh@baslerafrika.ch
