In the context of the Spring ’21 Davies Forum, Making Sense of a Post-Western World: Interdisciplinary Tools, Global Perspectives, Dr. Linda Tuhiwai Smith addresses the question of how indigenous knowledge(s) can help us to make sense of a nascent, post-Western world – the arrival of which may have been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic – where the West’s relative primacy in shaping world affairs may be in eclipse. Since publishing her groundbreaking book, Decolonizing Methodologies in 1999, Dr. Smith’s work has launched a movement of Indigenous-led critiques on academic thought and pursuits of knowledge while inspiring efforts that promote Indigenous autonomy and power in research interventions.

Faculty: Nora Fisher Onar, International Studies, Nicola Andrews, Gleeson Library, Dorothy Kidd, Media Studies, and Adrienne Johnson, Environmental Studies.
