Inhaltsangabe: This timely, thorough, and original interrogation of academic practices moves beyond current analyses of indigenous epistemologies in academic institutions to provide a comparative indigenous and postcolonial critique of the modern university. Rauna Kuokkanen argues that the future of the university depends on its openness to indigenous epistemes, which have thus far been excluded by various mechanisms of epistemic ignorance. The university's exclusive epistemic practice creates situations in which indigenous peoples cannot effectively speak: they are not understood by the academy when expressing their own epistemic conventions. "Reshaping the University" proposes a new logic, grounded in principles central to indigenous philosophies. The "logic of the gift" disrupts the dominant logic of hegemonic rationalism and colonial dualism characteristic of academic discourse and practice. It calls for responsibility toward, and reciprocation with, indigenous thought and knowledge. This critical examination of the modern, Western academy will be essential reading for anyone who cares about the role of the university in contemporary society. It will be important for scholars, students, and teachers in many fields, including education, Native studies, sociology and anthropology, philosophy, and cultural studies.
Rezension: Kuokkanen is fierce and unflinching in her arguments, and her documentation and bibliography are flawless; her ideas are powerful and necessary. When she speaks of her own experience and uses her own homescape of the Deatnu River to articulate the paradox of an indigenous scholar, she is ... poetic and compelling.? Kathleen Osgood Dana, University of the Arctic, B?IKI: The International S?mi Journal
