Objectivity

Knowledge is never objective. It comes from a viewpoint or different perspectives. Objectivity is seen in our culture as neutral or impartial. But that understanding of objectivity comes from a specific perspective (white, male, heterosexual). All other positions are made invalid and subjective, denying voice and subjectivity.

    Objectivity is such a key part of the white supremacy culture chart, thank you for highlighting it. This makes me question what kind of knowledge production and learning is happening in the/our university (or academia as a whole) that is being presented as objective. How can we better identify this false objectivity narrative and what can we do to reject it?
