Hess, Juliet; Talbot, Brent C. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019

Chávez, Luis; Skelchy, Russell P. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
The word decolonization often is used metaphorically in scholarship in the humanities to describe an array of processes involving social justice, resistance, sustainability and preservation. We argue against using decolonization as metaphor because decolonization demands a level of political engagement different from other social justice projects.…

Walker, Gavin Robert – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
The recent South African student movements calling for 'decolonized' university curricula and campuses are the most audible and visible symptoms of the failure to transform the country's higher education system since the democratic dispensation of the early 1990s.

Vázquez Córdoba, Héctor Miguel – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
Indigenous knowledge has been marginalized and excluded through a system based on a worldview that perpetuates colonialism. The actions and attitudes of nation-states and academic bodies deem, recognize, and value certain ways of knowing as "superior," which marginalizes knowledge from Indigenous cultures. Considering an educational…
