Book excerpt: "A must-read for anyone interested in enhancing a historical understanding of our present through a consideration of what it means to decolonize."--Priyamvada Gopal, University of Cambridge In 2015, students at the University of Cape Town demanded the removal of a statue of Cecil Rhodes, the imperialist, racist business magnate, from their campus. Their battle cry, #RhodesMustFall, sparked an international movement calling for the decolonization of universities all over the world. Today, as the movement develops beyond the picket line, how might it go on to radically transform the terms upon which universities exist? In this book, students, activists, and scholars discuss the possibilities and the pitfalls of doing decolonial work in the heart of the establishment. Subverting curricula, demanding diversity, and destroying old boundaries, this is a radical call for a new era of education. Chapters include: *Rhodes Must Fall: Oxford and Movements for Change (Dalia Febrial) *Race and the Neoliberal University ((John Holmwood) *Black/Academia (Robbie Shilliam) *The Challenge for Black Studies in the Neoliberal University (Kehinde Andrews) *Open Initiatives for Decolonising the Curriculum (Pat Lockley) *Decolonising Education: A Pedagogic Intervention (Carol Azumah Dennis) *Understanding Eurocentrism as a Structural Problem of Undone Science (William Jamal Richardson) As the book's insightful Introduction states, "Taking colonialism as a global project as a starting point, it becomes difficult to turn away from the Western university as a key site through which colonialism--and colonial knowledge in particular--is produced, consecrated, institutionalized and naturalized." Offering resources for students and academics to challenge and resist colonialism inside and outside the classroom, Decolonizing the University provides the tools for radical change in educational disciplines, pedagogies, and institutions.
