3 Indigenous Knowledge

Bibliodiversity asks what it would mean to scholarly communications to recognize indigenous knowledge and diverse knowledge processes as scholarship. These questions are explored further in the material below.

  • In his talk, how does Wiggan differentiate between indigenous knowledge and indigenous science? What is important about this distinction?
  • What are the benefits of integrating indigenous knowledge into mainstream processes? What are some of the challenges? Choosing one or two challenges, how would you overcome them?
  • How does capitalism impact the concept of bibliodiversity?
