What Comes After Critique? Imagining Critical Afterlives and Developing New Circuits of Knowledge and Value
Vital critical lenses, such as the decolonial, feminist, queer, and postcolonial, have revealed the extent to which knowledge systems in and of the Global North dominate and shape academic circuits, discourses and outputs. Taking critiques as our entry point, this stream explores what epistemologies, methodologies and circuits of knowledge come after these critiques.
How do we imagine and enact new forms of knowledge making and disseminating that go beyond critical or oppositional framings? How can we engage with and activate other modes of knowing and communicating, including the affective and embodied? What might new, or newly revisited, forms of convivial and disobedient scholarship that centre human dignity look and feel like? What does this mean for how we approach, understand and extend ‘African Studies’?
This stream convenes an array of conversations around questions of knowing and what it means to generate knowledge and regenerate it. We welcome innovative panels and papers that inject new life into:
forms of knowledge production, publishing and dissemination
concepts of convivial scholarship that centre human inclusiveness and dignity
archaeologies of knowledge and and ways of knowing
diverse media and modalities of knowledge expression, dissemination, recognition, and reward
research methodologies, outputs, and engagements beyond dominant textual formats
