Daffodils and Snow: Whose Language Matters? Part 1. A Conversation about Decolonising How We Teach, Learn, and Research

Three multilingual members of the Decolonial Dialogues co-editorial team – Riadh Ghemmour, Maica Gugolati and Carol Ann Dixon – present December’s jointly authored blog in order to critically reflect on the question, "Whose language matters?" Their research perspectives are informed by the decolonial praxis and scholar-activism of key luminaries – including Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o, Gayatri Spivak, Stuart Hall and Bagele Chilisa; and the featured linguistic analysis draws (respectively) on the contributors’ personal lived and learned experiences of speaking African Indigenous languages, translating singing-sign language, and performing Jamaican Patois poetics.
