CERJ Volume 7 launch and the discussion between Cheif Editor Basma Hajir and Professor Boaventura de Sousa Santos is available to view online

Attended by over 140 Faculty members on Zoom, the launch of volume 7 was a particularly special occasion thanks to the contributions of a distinguished guest: Professor Boaventura de Sousa Santos. The entire session is available to watch online viaYouTube.

Professor Santos, who was introduced by the Head of Faculty, Professor Susan Robertson, is a hugely influential and globally renowned scholar. The video of the event is well worth watching. Many attendees described it as one of the most intellectually stimulating and inspiring discussions that they have experienced while at Cambridge. By way of an example, Nidhi Singal, Professor of Disability and Inclusive Education at the Faculty, commented: "Huge congratulations to the team at CERJ for putting together one of the most intellectually rich and inclusive seminars I have attended in the Faculty over the last few years. Listening to the discussions reminded me of the long journey we have been on from students asking me if they could quote Asian and African scholars (given they were deemed less-rigorous in methods classes), to listening to Basma Hajir engage with Professor Santos on issues of cognitive justice and the value of knowledges! As someone whose 'unlearning' of my own PhD training, received in the early 2000s at the Faculty, began when I read Santos' edited collection,Another Knowledge is Possible: Beyond Northern Epistemologies, this felt very personal. CERJ reflects the future and the seminar, expertly led by Basma Hajir with support from Nomisha Kurian, reminds us again what we as a Faculty are about: our students, nurturing a vision of a socially and cognitively just future."
