Neoliberalism and Knowledge from the Margins

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The literature on indigenous ecological knowledge, local knowledge and amateur science is extensive, and demonstrates a long history of tension between "knowledge from the margins" and formal institutions of science; as long as there has been science in any formal sense, there have been battles over its boundaries. One of the notable features of recent decades, however, is the rise of widely-recognized scientific experts located firmly outside the scientific realm. These experts, despite bearing very little in the way of scientific credentials and a great weight of scorn from the academic community, are accorded tremendous scientific legitimacy by local, national, and international governmental and non-governmental agencies. I will argue in this paper that the rise of neoliberal science management regimes has opened up room for such challenges to academic legitimacy by prioritizing the privatization and commercialization of knowledge. Clearly this creates space for the blatant promotion of science in the service of commercial interests, but I will argue that it may simultaneously create space for science in the service of activist agendas discouraged within academia.
