Thank you Sharon Irish for the reference to A Third University is Possible. I am intrigued by the blurb:
A Third University is Possible unravels the intimate relationship between the more than 200 US land grant institutions, American settler colonialism, and contemporary university expansion. Author la paperson cracks open uncanny connections between Indian boarding schools, Black education, and missionary schools in Kenya; and between the Department of Homeland Security and the University of California. Central to la paperson’s discussion is the “scyborg,” a decolonizing agent of technological subversion.
Drawing parallels to Third Cinema and Black filmmaking assemblages, A Third University is Possible ultimately presents a framework for hotwiring university “machines” to the practical work of decolonization.
I am very intrigued by the notion of “scyborg” which autocorrect wants to render as “cyborg”. We are very interested here in Canada about reconciliation and the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) and the legacy of Indian residential schools. I am sure there are some great connections to make with the work of la paperson.
