Hari Prasad Adhikari Sacré

Hari Prasad Sacré obtained a doctoral degree in educational sciences from Ghent University with his dissertation entitled Reading Illiteracy: A pedagogical study about cultural (il)literacy in Flanders. His research discusses new forms of illiteracy arising in displaced communities forcefully travelling imperial borders and settling in Flanders. Drawing on a postcolonial direction in critical pedagogy, integrating the work of Gayatri Chakrabarty Spivak and Henry Giroux, he explores the possibilities for emancipation from cultural illiteracy. Overall, his academic and artistic work explores cultural translation as a pedagogical project for dialogue, solidarity and emancipation.


As a postdoctoral member of the research group, Hari continues working on the pedagogical issue of translation between the Global North and the Global South. He does so by exploring educational strategies for adult adoptees to invert their monolingualism into a potential multilingualism, capable of translating the global asymmetry between their adoptive and first communities.
