Disrupting Colonial Pedagogies

Theories and Transgressions
Table of
The impact of conquest and colonialism on identity and the construction of knowledge Jillian Ford and Nathalia E. Jaramillo edit a collection of writings by women that examine womanist worldviews in philosophy, theory, curriculum, public health, and education. Drawing on thinkers like bell hooks and Cynthia Dillard, the essayists challenge the colonizing hegemonies that raise and sustain patriarchal and male-centered systems of teaching and learning. Part One examines how womanist theorizing and creative activity offer a space to study the impact of conquest and colonization on the Black female body and spirit. In Part Two, the contributors look at ways of using text, philosophy, and research methodologies to challenge colonizing and colonial definitions of womanhood, enlightenment, and well-being. The essays in Part Three undo the colonial pedagogical project and share the insights they have gained by freeing themselves from its chokehold. Powerful and interdisciplinary, Disrupting Colonial Pedagogies challenges colonialism and its influence on education to advance freer and more just forms of knowledge making.

"Inspired by bell hooks' engaged and transgressive pedagogical discourses, this compelling, informative, 'disruptive' anthology captures the powerful reflections of feminist/womanist women of color as they interrogate toxic practices of the white academy in the South. The essays, which cover a rich variety of topics, are candid, brilliant, sobering, informative and inspirational. A must read for strategies to transform higher education during challenging times."--Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Spelman College
