Constant questioning on-and-off the page: Race, decolonial ethics and women researching in Africa
Â© The Author(s) 2019. Drawing from emergent scholarship in feminist political geography on discomfort feminism and the literature on decolonial ethics for research more broadly, I argue that further work is necessary to deconstruct the artificial barriers between â€˜the fieldâ€™ and â€˜non-fieldâ€™/home and that this project remains particularly acute for research â€˜on Africa.â€™ Motivated by the conversations inspired by this volumeâ€”which importantly consider the possibilities, challenges and tensions of woman-researchers in Africaâ€”I argue that our exchanges must be simultaneously attuned to the racial politics of doing research in contemporary African societies. The adoption of decolonial ethical orientations is valuable in pushing such a project forward.
