Session Abstract

This is the second CASID strategic planning session, following the Town Hall, and is another opportunity to engage around key strategic priorities, as guided by the 2021 CASID membership survey. In this session, we will collaborate on rethinking the core literature of ‘development’ and imagine what ‘decolonized’ and anti-racist International Development Studies might look like, within wider discussions about how to grow and sustain the Decolonizing 'Development' Community of Praxis. This effort brings together several priorities identified in the 2021 CASID membership survey, including decolonization, anti-racism and inclusivity.

Building on workshops initiated at the CASID 2021 conference, the session will involve: (i) brainstorming around a draft syllabus and thinking through ways to contribute to decolonial ontologies, epistemologies and methodologies; (ii) identifying ways to support one another to implement the syllabus in our classrooms, workplaces and communities; and (iii) making recommendations about how CASID, specifically, can support this work. We will officially launch a living document on the CASID website in 2023 based on our efforts in this session and further engagement with members afterwards. Our motivation is to build an understanding of and appreciation for the importance of decolonization through/of development studies, and push back against cynicism by allowing students and communities to feel hopeful, envision possibilities for ethical action, and take action. We would like this living document to be regularly updated with input from our members and to be an accessible document that can easily be used for reference by anyone interested in our goals.
