This session will be an interactive workshop in which we consider the possibilities and problems in decolonising pedagogies. We will interrogate, together, processes of knowledge creation and normalisation, exploring possibilities for the deprivileging of persistently dominant discourses through education. We will organise the workshop in such a way that participants can engage with authors from different perspectives, with each other and with the facilitators. We aim to produce an atmosphere that encourages discussion and reflection, and allows for both disagreement and consensus.

Readings: these are necessary preparation for full participation in the workshop. The reading list can be found here.
Readings are available now: Article,  NGuGi and Njabulo S Ndebele
 

Health warning: there will be no lectures though there will be short inputs from both facilitators.
