Georgia: A Third University Is Possible

A conversations with K. Wayne Yang

Uncovering the decolonizing ghost in the colonizing machine

K. Wayne Yang's work examines the intersection of education and indigenous futurity. His scholarship articulates how our conception and experience of schooling is shaped by settler colonialism and proposes strategic ways to re-program school towards decolonizing purposes. The following conversation attempts to contextualize his 2017 book, A Third University is Possible (University of Minnesota Press), within his larger body of research and community organizing. It took place on April 27, 2019, at John Muir College (designed by the modernist architect Robert Mosher) at UC San Diego on the territory of the Kumeyaay Nation, where I am currently a student and Wayne a teacher.
