GDC Study Group

Study Network from around the world

The Global (De)Centre Study Group is a Study Network from around the world, which integrates different disciplines (academic and artistic) with the aim of discussing and searching for de-centered and collaborative epistemologies and methods, and practices.

The GDC Study Group members regularly meet, on-line, to connect and share and to spar in working groups.

Migration Working Group

In the Migration Working Group, we seek to push beyond the boundaries of established migration theory to explore decolonized and decentred theoretical approaches to help us understand human mobilities. In doing so, we engage a multidisciplinary approach that offers multiple perspectives while challenging the role of the researcher.

Epistemology, History and Pedagogy Working Group

In this group we work on a collaborative research on sociologically oriented practices of teaching and research to promote social change. In our sessions we discuss our research procedures, methods and sources based on critical paradigms of Epistemology, History and Pedagogy.

Art and Culture Working Group

This group´s aim is to exchange actual debates on Art and Culture, considering the work of academics, curators and artists, from different parts of the world, around issues such as inequality, diversity and mobility in Art and Culture production and access.

Art Practices and Pedagogy Group

A forum for cultural practitioners and self-organized collectives from around the world to work, play, and (un)learn traversing formal and informal structures, settings, and spaces. We seek to develop and adapt tools and resources for looking, listening, sharing, playing, learning, questioning, and sustaining in a decentered way.
