There was a particular instinct that drove us to produce a special issue on decolonising knowledge practices. We thought that by paying close attention to how research is being done by researchers who are working intentionally to subvert some of the dominant Western paradigms and hegemonies, we may gain some insight into what decolonising knowledge practices look and feel like. This original instinct has been well and truly borne out by the wonderful contributions made by the papers in this issue. Each paper holds tremendous value on its own, but collectively, this issue provides us with a better understanding of the requirements and possibilities of doing decolonising knowledge work.
