Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Decolonizing Higher Education Canada & South Africa: Due January 15, 2018
This exciting dual-site research project is a comparative study of student led/directed efforts to decolonise/Indigenise higher education in Canada and South Africa. Sparked by the University of Winnipeg’s Indigenous Course Requirement, and South Africa’s widespread #FeesMustFall protests, this project seeks to comparatively investigate ways students in higher education are narrating, resisting and challenging colonial legacies in their unique contexts. This project explores ways that students are reimagining and engaging with their own education to develop emergent spaces that challenge violence and insecurity related to colonial legacies.
