Thinking beyond the particular: regenerating academic practices through the (extra)curricula
In this course we will read and discuss intersectionality in academic research practices. Our goal is to examine this topic by questioning strategies of knowledge production. To do so we will invite in voices less heard in academic spaces, exploring the politics of citation. How and who do we cite in our research and curriculum? We will encourage you to think beyond shibboleths, sharing pragmatic strategies on how to move beyond borders and boundaries in teaching and research. Drawing from bell hook’s theoretical explorations of teaching to transgress we will subject out knowledge practices to a decolonizing critique.
Course Leaders: Dr Charissa Granger and Dr Férdia Stone-Davis
