Visiting scholar | Danah Abdulla

Global Arts and Cultures welcomes designer, educator and researcher Danah Abdulla, who will deliver a lecture called Changing the Terms of the Conversation: Imagining Otherwise, part of RISD’s Conversations in Contemporary Art lecture series. Calls to decolonize design practice and education have become more numerous, but the term itself is often stripped of its urgency. Decolonizing design and design education requires thinking otherwise. This session will introduce participants to how decolonial thinking enables us to think differently—otherwise—specifically thinking of history and the concepts of “good design,” who contributes to it and whose knowledge is valued.
