We are pleased to announce the publication of a new scholarly book focusing on centring African epistemologies into scholarship in the Humanities and Social Sciences domain by AOSIS Scholarly Books.
The book Azibuye emasisweni: Reclaiming our space and centring our knowledge delves into the importance of prioritising African epistemologies in various fields of study and the need for decolonisation. The book is a collaborative effort of scholars across multiple universities in South Africa and the diaspora.
The book, which includes contributions from an intergenerational mix of scholars, focuses on the importance of re-Africanising the curriculum by emphasising indigenous African epistemologies, languages, and individuals. It covers a range of human sciences disciplines, including education, sociology, psychology, fine arts, indigenous knowledge systems, and more.
The editors hope that readers, both in South Africa and worldwide, will benefit from this insightful and rich text, which provides diverse perspectives and insights. By taking the role of indigenous African knowledge seriously and prioritising it in higher education, the book aims to contribute to ongoing efforts to decolonise the curriculum, creating a more inclusive, equitable educational landscape.
The book is published by the University of South Africa in partnership with AOSIS Scholarly Books.
