BOOK LAUNCH: DECOLONISING KNOWLEDGE AND KNOWERS

6 October | 16:00 18:00

Dear Staff and Students

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Teaching & Learning Office cordially invites you to register for an online Book Launch: Decolonising Knowledge and Knowers.

Blurb

Decolonising Knowledge and Knowers contributes to the current struggles for decolonising education in the global South, focusing on the highly illuminating case of South African higher education. Galvanised by #FeesMustFall and #RhodesMustFall student protests, South Africa has seen particularly intense and broad social engagement with debates over decolonising universities. However, much of this debate has been consumed with definitions and meanings. In contrast, Decolonising Knowledge and Knowers shows how conceptual tools, specifically from Legitimation Code Theory, can be enacted in research and teaching to meaningfully work towards productive decolonisation. Each chapter addresses a key issue in contemporary debates in South African higher education and shows how practices concerning knowledge and knowers are playing a role, drawing on quantitative and qualitative research, praxis, and interdisciplinary research.
