Limits of Decolonial Debate in Internet Studies

Online Roundtable

Continuing the discussion started at AoIR conference, this online roundtable analyzes the limits of decolonial approach in internet studies. What are the pitfalls of the decolonial approach, particularly in terms of being co-opted by the colonizers as a brand? What is missing from the decolonial debate in internet studies? How can we make sense of the oversized role played by institutions from the Global North in this debate? Starting from these and other questions, this roundtable will bring researchers to share their views and engage in a constructive debate.
