Knowing Outside of English: Decolonizing at York

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In early 2020, Eugenia Zuroski published a short article in MAI journal's toolkit series critiquing conventional introductory exercises in the university classroom. Called ‘Where Do You Know From?’, the task ‘illustrate[s] the importance of attending conscientiously to the ways we relate to one another in the classroom as part of our pedagogical and political responsibilities’. In this piece, Alexandra Kingston-Reese and Shazia Jagot discuss where they know from and how this knowledge has impacted their teaching, research, and development of the University of York's Decolonising Network.
