Knowledge, power and the Global South: epistemes and economies after colonialism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The chapter examines the contributions of post-colonial intellectuals and Global South perspectives to understanding global capitalism and knowledge creation in the neo-colonial, neoliberal world. In our postcolonial world, the creation and circulation of knowledge is uneven. It is embedded in a political economy of knowledge production and a global division of intellectual labour built upon the violence of colonialism, imperialism and economic domination. The creation and circulation of knowledge is as much about power as it is about the content or cultural origins of the ideas being exchanged.
