Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoplesby Linda Tuhiwai Smith
Synopses & Reviews
After a long awaited 13 years, the new Second Edition of the best-selling methodology textbook is finally here.
The Second Edition of Decolonizing Methodologies by Linda Tuhiwai Smith has been heavily updated with:
* A brand NEW Foreword
* Entire NEW Chapter 11
* Substantially revised chapter 5, 7, 8 and Conclusion
The Second Edition of Decolonizing Methodologies will be the essential textbook for anyone involved in researching indigenous people, and a classic text in research methodology.
To the colonized, the term "research" is conflated with colonialism; academic research steeped in imperialism remains a painful reality. This essential volume explores intersections of imperialism and research - specifically, the ways in which imperialism is embedded in disciplines of knowledge and tradition as "regimes of truth." Concepts such as "discovery" and "claiming" are discussed and an argument presented that the decolonization of research methods will help to reclaim control over indigenous ways of knowing and being.
Now in its eagerly awaited second edition, this bestselling book has been substantially revised, with new case studies and examples and important additions on new indigenous literature and the role of research in indigenous struggles for social justice, which brings this essential volume urgently up-to-date.
Challenging traditional models for conducting social science research within marginalized populations, “research justice” is a strategic framework and methodological intervention that aims to transform structural inequalities in research. This book is the first to offer a close analysis of that framework and present a radical approach to socially just, community-centered research. It is built around a vision of equal political power and legitimacy for different forms of knowledge, including the cultural, spiritual, and experiential, with the goal of greater equality in public policies and laws that rely on data and research to produce social change.
