The Decolonial Turn and the Humanities Curriculum: Prospects, Practice and Interventions

The “decolonial turn” (aligned to the broader concept of decolonisation) is a nuanced, layered and sliding signifier. Despite its conceptual slipperiness, the insights, debate and discussion that it spurs provides a productive framework for critiquing and thinking about the education transformation project. This takes two forms:

  1. The `epistemological' case in which decolonisation is seen as constitutive of reorganising and rethinking knowledge; and,
  2. The `historical' case in which decolonisation is seen as playing an unprecedented role in reviewing and reconstituting social relations and identities in contemporary society.

We invite abstracts for scholarly papers for praxes-oriented sharing and panel sessions that expand critical horizons while remaining open to the nuances within a pluriversal critique. We would like to encourage Humanities’ scholars and students to interrogate the following broad philosophical themes:

  • Histories and politics of knowledge production in the era of globalisation
  • Knowledge production & decoloniality
  • Critiques of the decolonial turn in curriculum transformation
  • Students & curriculum transformation
  • Technological (im)possibilities in teaching & learning
  • Critical pedagogies & curricula to address bias and inequality
  • Contradictions & prospects for curriculum transformation in a marketised global higher education sector

We also welcome papers and presentations that address more practical concerns such as:

  • The Humanities Curriculum
  • Discipline, knowledge formations and epistemic (in)justice
  • Meaning, nature and purpose of universities
  • Knowledge & Pedagogy
  • Theories, methodologies, practice
  • Global economy of knowledge
  • Knowledge roles and the global South
  • Remaking of intellectual cultures
  • Remaking textbooks, undergraduate & postgraduate syllabi
  • Reforming institutional architectures and cultures & intersectional erasures

Panels will be organised once abstracts and proposals are received and accepted for the conference.
