Universities are the contexts within which curricula are compromised by affiliations to global capitalism. Universities in the Global South are confronting their own colonial pasts – contributors to this collection have been asked to make their diverse and contextualised experiences and discoveries conform to the oppressive conventions of academic ‘essays’. There is a priority for the fostering of abilities to enter into collaborative relationships with local traditions, social structures, materials, and craft techniques, the pragmatics of making sense of homes and communities in a world of unregarded majorities. An important stimulus for other ways of imagining is evident in the re-animation of pre-colonised practices indigenous knowledge and resistances to colonisation. This literature provides a more globally interconnected basis for understanding resistances to dominant accounts of cultural history as a dissemination of Western thought, and ways of revising and supplementing assumptions that shape the architectural curriculum. The chapter also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book.
