In the original call for papers, we claimed that, despite high levels of interest in the ‘decolonial turn’, little has been written in higher education journals on how and to what extent the supremacy of Western modernity is actually being challenged in knowledge production in different disciplines, curricula, pedagogic, cultural and linguistic practices on the ground in university policy and practice.  We were proved wrong, for we were overwhelmed by well over a hundred responses to our call –…
