About this book

This multidisciplinary collection probes ways in which emerging and established scholars perceive and theorize decolonization and resistance in their own fields of work, from education to political and social studies, to psychology, medicine, and beyond. In this time of renewed global spiritual awakening, indigenous communities are revisiting ways of knowing and evoking theories of resistance informed by communal theories of solidarity. Using an intersectional lens, chapter authors present or imagine modes of solidarity, resistance, and political action that subvert colonial and neocolonial formations. Placing emphasis on the importance of theorizing the spirit, a discourse that is deeply embedded in our unique cultures and ancestries, this book is able to capture and better understand these moments and processes of spiritual emergence/re-emergence.

Reviews

“This is a readable and highly stimulating volume. It will be of interest to those from a range of spiritual backgrounds, particularly those concerned to deepen the connection between spirituality and the transformation of society. Its central message, that the human spirit cannot be colonised, is powerfully and poignantly articulated.” (Paul Hess, Black Theology, December 3, 2020)
