Jacques Zannou, M.A.
Jacques Zannou is an assistant researcher at the UNESCO Chair in Arts and Culture in Education (UCACE) at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany). He received his M.A. in Intercultural, Media and Adult Education from the Bundeswehr University in Munich. His research focuses on the cultures, identities and social realities of people from the Global South and Global North, applying decolonial and postcolonial approaches. In his PhD project, he intends to explore concepts for education suited for the post-digital age that can curb colonial continuity and promote sustainable development. The empirical reconstruction of implicit perceptions that people in the Global South and Global North have about the manifestations of colonial continuity will serve as a basis for drafting concepts of decolonial education. At the UNESCO Chair, he takes on tasks regarding communication and coordination for the publication of the international, peer-reviewed, open-access “Journal for Research in Aesthetic, Arts and Cultural Education”.
