Under the umbrella of Academic hospitality as epistemic inclusion, we will explore the various avenues for opening up pluralism in academic discourse and as an attempt at imagining the third university. It is important to understand that this pluralism is not magically possible on its own but rather through citizenship literacy, which education institutions play a role in imparting.
To foster this pluralist environment, the curriculum is designed to be more inclusive of different texts that have differing points and including:
- discussions and reflection on coloniality of knowledge (think mainstream knowledge and exploring the question of what is knowledge and whose knowledge is it)
- decolonial research practices,
- ethical considerations
- inclusion of voice in the classroom as well as in knowledge creation processes.
- The inclusion of different texts would allow and encourage more critical thinking and debates on what types of knowledge exist and possibly deliberate on how the differences exist.
The objective of the course is to facilitate critical reflection on the academic state and the idea of a third university. According to Horton and Freire (1990) “real liberation is achieved through popular participation. Participation in turn is realized through an educational practice that itself is both liberatory and participatory, that simultaneously creates a new society and involves the people themselves in the creation of their own knowledge”.
The course assessment are thus in the form of short reflection pieces and 1 final reflection exercise.
