Chapter 14: Decolonising feminist methodologies: an epistemological politics of the racialised and feminised flesh
Restricted access

In this piece I chart my journey-in-relation with feminist decoloniality as a methodological praxis of healing liberations and transformative justice. I walk us through the roots of this framework and its site/relationship of emergence to then move to three stories and ‘organisational’ moments in this on-going journey of feminised and decolonised unlearning and becoming anew-ancient in theory, practise and (self)relation. I explore these moments from my placedness in relation and responsibility as an Indigenous-Mestiza single mother, daughter, granddaughters and comadres of Colombian-Muisca, Eastern European Jewish and Celtic heritages, living, loving, re-existiendo on the unceded and sovereign lands of the Awabakal and Worimi peoples in so called South-East Australia. My mapping of these roots/routes is with the intent and intentionality to share the onto-epistemological and ethico-political roots, responsibilities, praxis and implications of the political and epistemological choice of walking in the borderlands of displacement and desire as a decolonial feminist. This choice is a commitment to not only our survivance but to our joyous wild flourishing as an imminent movement of this epistemological politics of the raced and feminised flesh.
