This trailblazing, world-leading education list challenges global education systems based on imperialist and colonialist regimes, challenging the very constructions of ‘research’, ‘education’ and ‘scholarship’.

Tackling present day issues that are the result of embedded imperialist regimes of knowledge, the Education list gives voice to movements for the decolonisation of Western education systems, indigenous struggles for social justice and reclaiming ways of indigenous knowledge. Themes across the list include intersectionality, Indigenous way of knowing, decolonising the curriculum, the politics of race and white supremacy, colonialism, cultural power and anti-racist scholarship.
