In globality, old socio-cultural habits have returned. The colonial experience was short-lived. The beginnings of postcoloniality was a slow loss of the results of that experience. Postcoloniality is now defined in terms of location and diaspora. Some areas of the world are in extremis to which none of the programs hosted by you can apply. How do we think solutions? Where is the gendered rural episteme? The humanities emphasize the cognitive variations reflected in my title. How can these variations enhance work in qualitative social sciences as a means to an imaginative activism that allows for the spatial distinctions implied in the current conjuncture, as indicated above, as well as the epistemological performance required by those of us who investigate for institutional validation?
