In this great fun video, Penn State University’s Jeff Edmunds makes a plea for open access:
The Decolonial Critique
The Decolonial Critique is a global network of scholars and activists who have an interest in theoretical and applied approaches to coloniality/decoloniality within and beyond the university. This includes a focus on decolonising various aspects of academia, such as: research methods; citation practices; pedagogy; curricula; institutional hierarchies; and other related areas. The network recognises that there are a number of contested approaches to understanding coloniality/decoloniality and welcomes diverse perspectives. The network does not only focus on the harms of colonialism and neo-colonialism, but also on the potential harms of purported efforts to decolonise. The purpose of the list is to: discuss topics relating to coloniality/decoloniality; coordinate online and in-person events; facilitate collaboration; share research resources; share teaching materials; and nurture a supportive and inclusive community.
