Focus & Scope

Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society solicits any work purposefully engaged in the decolonization process, regardless of discipline or field, encouraging work that actively seeks undisciplinary connections. We recognize that this is a wide net to cast but feel strongly that decolonization must happen at all levels and in all fields; decolonization seeks to explore the relationships between knowledges and tears down the artificial disciplinary demarcations of dominant ways of knowing. Colonial power affects all areas of life and study – this journal seeks to engage and confront that power at every level.

While the primary focus of this journal is education, this is broadly conceived of within a web of social sciences and humanities, recognizing that education does not happen solely or even primarily in the classroom but is part and parcel of many other social interactions and relationships. Areas of interest include but are not limited to studies in: art, anthropology, ecology, education (formal), ethnic studies, history, Indigenous studies, literature, media studies, social work, and sociology. We are also accept submissions in different mediums such as video, audio, visual art, or poetry and will work with authors to find a way to best accomodate these pieces.

As part of our commitment to centering the stories of the colonized and in displacing colonial forms of knowledge production, this journal is accepting submissions that center qualitative methods. We recognize the power of voice and personal stories in the decolonization process and feel that qualitative methods best reflect and represent these voices and stories in all of their complexities. We also welcome submissions that include or blend quantitative work together with qualitative sources, recognizing the value of the various styles working together to fulfill different roles. Submissions that rely solely or primarily on quantitative methods will be returned to the author(s).
