Decolonising the curriculum: Southern interrogations of time, place and knowledge Catherine Manathunga, SOTL in the South, Volume 2, Issue 1 Abstract: “Despite decades of postcolonial, Indigenous and feminist research, dominant Northern knowledge continues to claim universality across time and space in many academic disciplines and continues to ignore geopolitical power struggles over knowledge. This has taken on a particular urgency in South Africa since the #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall student campaigns beginning in 2015. The international Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) field has only begun to grapple with the implications of Southern theory for teaching and learning. In this article, I focus on Southern interrogations about time, place and knowledge and what they offer us in terms of decolonising the curriculum and southernising SOTL. I apply these theoretical resources to the need to trouble taken-for-granted knowledge hierarchies between Northern and Southern knowledge and argue for a truly dialogic knowledge exchange and redistribution of epistemological privilege. I illustrate how these theoretical resources can be applied to the site of intercultural postgraduate supervision and conclude by extrapolating the implications of this theoretical work to efforts to decolonise the undergraduate and postgraduate university curriculum.”

Unsettling Methodologies/Decolonizing Movements Craig Fortier, University of Waterloo; Journal of Indigenous Social Development Volume 6, Issue 1 (2017) “Abstract : As movements for social justice within settler colonial states like Canada and the United States begin to centralize Indigenous struggles for sovereignty as foundational to liberation, non-Indigenous movement participants are challenged to contend with what it means to decolonize within their respective movements. This article explores the potential to engage in decolonizing research methodologies among non-Indigenous anti-authoritarian activist groups. Based on an ethnographic and qualitative research with activists, this paper highlights three core themes emerging out of an attempt to assert a decolonizing methodological approach to research in non-Indigenous activist communities, including: identity and belonging, accountability and consent, and responsibility and appropriation.”
