The Pollinator Movement

Academia

Sometimes people ask me where they can find my thesis. If you are a grad student you know how great this is because I thought only my mom would read my work. And even then I was wrong.

Quick note: if you are not into academic jargon and don’t want to punish yourself by reading this don’t worry, everything will be on the blog. I’ve got you covered 😎

About my PhD Thesis:

Re-understanding Change: a decolonial pedagogy for empowering people to think from the margins.

My thesis is an an exercise of epistemic disobedience that shifts the place of enunciation of knowledge from Western academic institutions to that of epistemological fights happening in the periphery. It claims that the current socio-environmental crisis is at its core, a crisis of knowledge because the universal way of thinking and understanding the world is a legacy of a global colonial history that started with the colonization of the Americas and that led to the imposition of Western knowledge as the only lens from which to look at reality (Grosfoguel, 2015). It seeks to contribute to the unfinished project of decolonisation by questioning the Eurocentric knowledges we have inherited through Western academic institutions, and that stand as the only pathway for bringing about socio-environmental justice. I then designed a decolonial pedgagogy to empower people to bring about change, thinking from the margins.

I’ve also written a couple of peer-reviewed articles that were published in journals that are not open-access. This totally makes sense because what better way to contribute to knowledge than to put an insane price barrier behind it #AcademiaLogic. If you email me to thepollinatormovement@gmail.com I can share the articles with you. I’m also on ResearchGate.

Both articles show how the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030 don’t take into acount other voices, and why it is important to do so.
