From My Mother's Back

In this warm and honest memoir, celebrated academic Njoki Wane shares her journey from her parents' small coffee farm in Kenya, where she helped her mother in the fields as a child, to her current work as a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Moving smoothly between time and place, Wane uses memories, painful and tender, to show how her early lessons and the support given by her family allowed her to succeed as a woman of colour in the academy, and to later lift up her students facing their own difficult journeys.

" Equity in Practice: Transformational Training Resource " offers rich insights into issues facing multicultural, multi-ethnic societies. Specifically, the book focuses on Canadian society, and the reality of its multiculturalism and the challenges of attaining equity in such a diverse society. Despite existence of laws prohibiting prejudice and discrimination, there remain challenges in realizing true equity. This is in part due to the diverse and, times, biased perceptions of others: those that are different. Realizing equity is a worthwhile challenge even in the face of such obstacles. It requires constant learning from the experiences of others aimed at reducing the gaps in perceptions a...

The Politics of Cultural Knowledge

The advent and implementation of European colonialism have disrupted innumerable epistemological geographies around the globe. Countless cultural ways of knowing and local educational practices have in some way been displaced and dislocated within the universalizing project of the Euro-Colonial Empire. This book revisits the colonial relations of culture and education, questions various embedded imperial procedures and extricates the strategic offerings of local ways of knowing which resisted colonial imposition. The contributors of this collection are concerned with the ways in which colonial education forms the governing edict for local peoples. In The Politics of Cultural Knowledge, the authors offer an alternative reading of conventional discussions of culture and what counts as knowledge concerning race, class, gender, sexuality, identity, and difference in the context of the Diaspora.

  • Publisher: Unknown

This volume explores what it means to be an African in a political context in which such people are called upon to re-assert the value of identifying as African in order to counter the effects of neo-colonialism. This includes affirming visions of what Africanness can offer in terms of peoples being-in-the-world. The book also discusses the benefits associated with working together as people of African ancestry, as well as the evocation of Ubuntu. It focuses on the possibility of revisiting the urge for African rebirth, and shows how the idea of Pan-Africanism helps to keep this dream alive. It engages with a range of ideas that build on the Pan-African philosophy for grounding African cultural and political rebirth, and will contribute to debunking the mindset that prompts many African youths and adults to risk it all for an apparently better life on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Indigenous African Knowledge Production

Using personal narratives collected during several years of field research in Kenya, Wane demonstrates how Embu women use proverbs, fables, and folktales to preserve and communicate their world-view, knowledge, and cultural norms. She shows how this process preserves Indigenous knowledge devalued by the colonial and post-colonial educational systems, as well as the gendered dimension of the transmission process.
