About me

Kerstin Knopf is Professor of Postcolonial Literary and Cultural Studies at Department 10: Linguistics and Literature at the University of Bremen and became a member of XENOS in 2015.

Why I am supporting XENOS

One of my research areas is knowledge systems and epistemological orders and relationships in the world. Therefore, decolonization and pluralization of knowledge is an important goal of my work. Diverse knowledge and languages, which international students bring with them, are a valuable asset, which is often not perceived in Western Universities. With the support of students from various cultural and epistemological backgrounds, we can bring them into dialogue and integrate them into the knowledge formation at the University of Bremen and promote pluralistic knowledge and language worlds.
