This was the final session that I attended (2;45-345; I bugged out 3:30 b/c taxi comign at 4:00). It seems to me that the folks who want to “decolonize” things tend to be in the humanities or the more tech-oriented ones (yes, there were fascinating sessions about data analysis and privacy… the “access code” barriers […]
