Raewyn Connell Lecture - Shared screen with speaker view
Mira Al Hussein
Thank you for the great presentation! In the early 2000’s, a group of scholars from India tried to establish transnational networks as a pathway to create what they called a ‘Multiversity’. The efforts were led by Claude Alvares (who edited a book that came out of the first conference they had, Decolonising the University) and Ashish Nandi. Farid Al Atas was initially also part of this ambitious project. The project seems to have fallen through, and it might have to do with the lack of institutional support, but also the fact that spaces for ‘practice’ didn’t exist.

Thank you Prof Connell for the illuminating lecture. Much food for thoughts and practice. My apologies, I have to run for a class now. Bye everyone.

I also have to go, thanks a lot for the wonderful lecture!
I have always been fascinated by Raewyn. It is just refreshing and encouraging to read from and listen to her, especially for those who have to live and work as academics from the underside of history. But one questions holds my attention when I try to concern myself with the colonially of knowledge. Whether in Asia, South America, or Africa is the seeming invincibility of colonially of knowledge. It just seems to be imperious to any force. It would rather seem to grow strong. Using the historical approach suggested by Raewyn, one cannot help but see that attempts to change the colonial model of knowledge production has been going on for long. What exactly is the secrete of colonially of knowledge that makes it so tenacious?

Thank you for your response Raewyn, and for your work which I use in both my teaching and research. There is also a global dimension to state and non state responsibilities to maintain/work for the public good - Art 27 of UDHR says that everyone has to right to freely participate in, and benefit from, scientific and cultural knowledge. The rights perspective also obliges a non-discriminatory and inclusive approach

Interestingly, I’m editing a book on qualitative research methods at the moment and it just happened to have quite a number of Antipodean contributors - the reviewers did not like this very much (not that we could have done anything about it) - have you ever noticed this as an Australian scholar?
