Uprooting Epistemicide: Lecture Replay & Reading List

Are you a scholar yearning for guidance in centering a liberatory theoretic framework in your social justice oriented research? 

This 2-hour lecture will explore:

  • cultural epistemologies and a tool for reflexivity

  • required vocabulary for interrogating and creating new scholastic standards

  • 6 insights for assessing decolonial and liberatory interests in theory

This is a recorded lecture from December 6, 2019 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, School of Social Work

Shawna conducted a theory-focused, independent study, exploring and challenging how a given theory impacts the execution of sound research through an exploration of ontology and epistemology as well as concepts of decoloniality and liberation from an interdisciplinary prism. The work inspired the development of insights through the interrogation of select theories and practices in social work, particularly in assessing the extent to which they uphold liberatory interests. These insights led the author to construct a set of inquiry practices and tools challenging social work theory and research practice.

{Proceeds from this lecture will support the scholarship fund for BIPOC therapists across the globe to attend the training, Decolonizing Therapy for Black Folks.}
