This paper interrogates the relationship between social science research and the ways of doing, knowing and being privileged in the western university. It traces a line from the colonial origins of dominant knowledge and knowledge-making practices, through the creation of a rational scientist subject, to make visible the reproduction of epistemic inequality in modernity/coloniality. The link between epistemic injustice (Fricker, 2007) and neoliberal knowledge-production practices is made clear through a particular focus on the role research methods plays in this process and a framework of methodologies for epistemically-just research is proposed.
