Who We Are
Who We Are
Profile of SIG 153 Members
The postcolonial studies SIG is concerned with possibilities in curriculum studies that address the legacies of colonialism, neo-colonialism, imperialism and slavery and engage with the challenges and possibilities of on-going decolonization, global justice and solidarity  in education. Therefore, our members are involved in research concerning questions of dominance, power, resistance, contestations of justice,  representation, difference, pluralism, political economies, the reproduction of privilege, and teaching/learning about suffering/exploitation and implication in harm. We encourage inter-sectional analyses that connect the logics of capital, colonialism, nationalism, cultural/racial supremacy, patriarchy, hetero-normativity, ableism, international development and the politics of knowledge production. In 2012 our invited guest was Prof Anne Hickling Hudson who spoke about the joys and difficulties of using post-colonial theory to teach about global justice in Australia. Her talk inspired us to organize a pre-conference event in 2013 on Pedagogies of Implication.
