Module 2: Post 5 (Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society)

Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society is a peer reviewed online journal and blog that focuses on the reconstruction of Indigenous identities by providing writings and resources that go “both against and beyond the Western Academy.” The journal and blog have a very inclusive submission practices that are not tied to a specific discipline of the academy. There are 5 components to their practice: articles, editorials, interviews, reviews and continuations. Continuations are works that to not fit the mould of peer reviewed academic constructions.¬†As part of their inclusivity, all material is available in an open access format.

I found this resource while I was looking for information about remixing as a political strategy. This search led me to the above sites and the article: Remixing: Decolonial Strategies in Cultural¬†Production. This article positions the practice of remixes as a way to “signify the past as a means of informing the present, and provide a frame for the future.” The article is definitely worth the read.
