KEL and SPARC Launch “Unsettling Knowledge Inequities” Podcast

Open Access   ·   Open Data   ·   Open Education

SPARC has partnered with the Knowledge Equity Lab to launch a new podcast called Unsettling Knowledge Inequities, which will explore issues related to the politics of knowledge production, exchange, and circulation as well as the structural, global power dynamics that shape it.

Launching today with its first episode and new episodes each Tuesday, the project will have an initial 5 episode season featuring conversations with diverse and multigenerational knowledge holders from Canada, Peru, Nigeria, Uganda, the US, and more. 

What do equitable systems for creating & sharing knowledge look like? Which types of knowledge are valued? Which are excluded? Who decides? These are just a few of the questions that the podcast will discuss in upcoming episodes.

You can subscribe to the Unsettling Knowledge Inequities Podcast by searching for it in your preferred podcast app (available on Spotify, Apple, Google, Stitcher, and Podchaser), and you can learn more about the podcast at knowledgeequitylab.ca/podcast.
