About the Journal
The Journal of Decolonising Disciplines examines the relationality between higher education and society, revealing their dialectical relationship. It provides an intellectually unique space for considering responsive and cutting-edge research across all disciplines, and centres higher education and its role in transforming and developing society. It is an open access journal and aims to probe, develop and critique decolonising strategies in the broader context of contemporary social issues. The Journal is dedicated to the theoretical development of decoloniality and Indigeneity in higher education and is constituted as a space that fosters and facilitates the decolonisation of all disciplines through rigorous intellectual work in the context of South Africa, Africa and globally. It addresses contemporary issues and their relationship to curriculum changes in higher education, while being responsive to the needs and political, social and economic challenges of Indigenous peoples of the global South.
We encourage scholarly submissions from all disciplines, using a range of methodological approaches. As an intellectual community committed to decolonial and decolonising scholarship, the Journal encourages decolonial research in all areas in order to foster responsive pedagogies within the knowledge domain. Contributions from scholars working in the areas of decolonial studies, education, commerce, the sciences, legal studies, critical theory, postcolonial theory, epistemology, metaphysics and violence are encouraged to develop and frame the South African decolonial project in higher education. The editorial board will consider proposals for special issues relevant to the aims outlined above.
