Academic Team Manager
Kaye is using her sabbatical to explore knowledge production/dissemination and its influence on providing, supporting and promoting some voices in academia at the expense of others. She will be investigating questions such as ‘What do the existing forms of knowledge production mean for decolonising higher education, academics of colour and student learning?’, ‘How does this influence library collections and canons of knowledge?’, ‘What barriers are created by traditional academic knowledge production and publication?’
Kaye has worked in the library at DMU for many years and is currently an Academic Team Manager and the Library and Learning Services Fair Outcomes Champion working with the decolonising DMU project. She intends to produce a thought piece and a workshop addressing these and other questions considering the influences and impact of knowledge production on students and staff within the academy plus what it means within a context of decolonising.
