Decolonial Voices, Language and Race, Paperback / softback Book

Decolonial Voices, Language and Race Paperback / softback

Edited by Sinfree Makoni, Magda Madany-Saa, Bassey E. Antia, Rafael Lomeu Gomes

Part of the Global Forum on Southern Epistemologies series

Paperback / softback


In the wake of #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, #rhodesmustfall and the Covid-19 pandemic, this groundbreaking book echoes the growing demand for decolonization of the production and dissemination of academic knowledge.

Reflecting the dynamic and collaborative nature of online discussion, this conversational book features interviews with globally-renowned scholars working on language and race and the interactive discussion that followed and accompanied these interviews.

Participants address issues including decoloniality; the interface of language, development and higher education; race and ethnicity in the justice system; lateral thinking and the intellectual history of linguistics; and race and gender in a biopolitics of knowledge production.

Their discussion crosses disciplinary boundaries and is a vital step towards fracturing racialized and gendered epistemic systems and creating a decolonized academia.
