Knowledge Gap

Inquiry into the geopolitics of knowledge production arises from broader questions concerning representation and marginalization within processes of global knowledge production. We are interested in understanding whether there is an unequal and under representation of academic content produced in and by “Global South” researchers and if so, we are interested in understanding the various mechanisms and power dimensions through which such structures of inequality and exclusion are actively produced, reproduced and embedded in the global publishing system. In this case, we would also like to examine the implications of such inequalities in regards to diversity of knowledge, cognitive justice, equitable collaboration and sustainable development at large.
