PSA Newsletter #25 is a special issue on ‘Decolonising Academia?’ Our contributors critically engage with calls for decolonisation academia, examining different aspects of the university and its practises from a range of geographical and linguistic perspectives, including interrogating to what extent decolonial thought can take place in a neo-liberal academia, emphasising the importance of associate tutor training in decolonising the university, examining how the English language has colonised academia, and considering how we can decolonise academia beyond postcolonial studies. This issue also features reports about an international partnership and research project on ‘Decolonising Western Feminism’ and the World Literatures and the Global South conference. In our book reviews section, you can read a review of Sarbani Sen Vengadasalam’s New Postcolonial Dialectics: An Intercultural Comparison of Indian and Nigerian English Plays and Jessica Hinchy’s Governing Gender and Sexuality in Colonial India: The Hijra, c.1850-1900.
