Epistemic Witnessing: Theoretical Responsibilities, Decolonial Attitude and Lenticular Futures
Pillow, Wanda S.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v32 n2 p118-135 2019
Pillow explores complexities of witnessing in research linking theoretical oppression to inadequate, arrogant witnessing. Weaving narrative and reflection, Pillow considers what is engrained in theoretical oppression and reviews trauma studies engagement with witnessing as a case example. Thinking with feminist, queer and decolonial scholars, Pillow argues for epistemic witnessing based on ethical onto-epistemological responsibility driven by decolonial attitude and reparative reading. The essay is written in five phrasings, which may be read consecutively or randomly, and concludes with ideas for epistemic witnessing as reparative lenticular archives for past-present-futures.
