Unsettling Knowledge Podcast

From the Dutch ‘rijsttafel’ to contested street names, from the Eurovision Song Contest to sports and racism, the new "Unsettling Knowledge" podcast reflects on how empire and colonization have shaped contemporary society and culture. 


Together, hosts Dr Rachel Gillett and Dr Matthijs Kuipers, speak with scholars, community members, and experts, to uncover traces of empire in the present and confront controversial topics head on with those involved. 



What is the difference between the Indonesian and Indo-Dutch restaurants you see in The Netherlands? What role does food play in the Indo-Dutch community? And what has colonial history to do with it? We discuss these questions with guests Jeff Keasberry and Josina Heuvelsland.
