Abstract: Leveraging feminist and postcolonial critiques in their book Knowledge and Global Power: Making New Sciences in the South, academics Fran Collyer, Raewyn Connell, João Maia and Robert Morrell outline the global power relations of knowledge production and critique how knowledge is constituted, disseminated and validated. Knowledge production practices that both ignore the heritage of colonisation across the globe and erase situated knowledges that are produced in the global South have been challenged over the last decade (Connell, 2007; Connell et al., 2017). The authors foreground localised knowledges and theories from the peripheral South to disrupt the privileged knowledge, theories and discourses that are developed in the global North, or metropole (Connell, 2007).
