Decolonising research: an interview with Bagele Chilisa —David Denborough


In this interview, Motswana postcolonial scholar Professor Bagele Chilisa discusses
strategies for decolonising research, resisting the domination of Western knowledge,
working with Indigenous worldviews, and introducing accountability and collaboration
with people and communities who are the subjects of research. This piece has been created from two sources – a conversation between Bagele Chilisa, Cheryl White and David Denborough that took place in Gaborone, Botswana on 23 August 2018 and Bagele’s keynote presentation, Equality in diversity: Indigenous research methodologies, at the 2015 American Indigenous Research Association Conference.
