women of colour, marginalization, alternative knowing, renegotiating curriculum, inclusivity
The educational landscape and curriculum are shifting tremendously as educators attempt to grapple with systemic and global issues, growing divisions, humanitarian crises, institutional and political violence, racial and religious injustices, and righteous and dangerous resistance which are surfacing during these intense times brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic. Presently, educators face many frustrations and disappointments whereby working to create needed change becomes inevitable. In this position paper Momina and Irteqa as mother and daughter, Canadian Muslim women of South Asian ethnic decent, writers, poets, and critical scholars, share the truth of our knowing as an alternative way of knowing and initiating dialogue. By breaking the silence on oppressive systems and ideologies and reimagining and renegotiating curriculum, pedagogy, histories, and epistemologies from racialized perspectives we can transcend our collective suffering.
