How OA is, and isn’t, a way to decolonize anthropology

OA – at least makes material accessible –

it doesn’t change 1) the language, 2) the material 3) the participants

But blogging, and self publishing do!

Kinds of decolonization I’m looking at ->

  • more transparent research practices –
  • invitations for broader participation –
  • studies on publishing and language in anthropology –
  • Writing to new audiences –
  • New ways of communicating and new ways of authoring –

(also accessibility is certainly necessary step before we can talk about participation and engagement)
