Challenging Academia, Media and Research:

The worlds of academia, research and media has a rigid notion of who should be heard, what is a scholar and what is considered a valid form of data collection, media production and research. In this section, the poverty, race, disability, youth, migrant and indigenous scholars challenge the rigid concept of the canon, of scholarship itself and who should be heard and recognized.
