A benchmark in the process of Western imperial decolonisation to know”Walter Mignolo, of Duke University, the colonized, the term “research” is confused with European colonialism; the way in which university research was involved in the afflictions of imperialism remains a painful memory.This volume’s essence explores the intersections of imperialism and research – in particular, the way in which imperialism is incorporated into the disciplines of knowledge and tradition of “truth regimes”.Concepts such as “discovery” and “pretender” are discussed and an argument made that decolonization of research methods will help regain Aboriginal control over the means of knowing and being known.Now, in its eagerly awaited second edition of this best-seller has been profoundly reworked, with new case studies and important examples and additions on new indigenous literature, the role of research in aboriginal struggles for social justice, which brings the much-needed urgent volume up to date.
