Dismantling the Master's House
An introduction to our first issue
Keywords:knowledge production, decolonisation, authorship, anti-racism, epistemic justice
This article introduces the Stolen Tools journal. It begins by telling the story of how the journal was founded and the literature that we were inspired by. I focus on Audre Lorde's essay 'The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House'. The article then describe how Stolen Tools works, exploring the positives and negatives of our mentoring model, author submission procedure, decolonial ambitions and organising structure. I end by introducing the seven articles that form our first issue, and explain how they fit under the issue's theme: what does anti-racist knowledge look like?
