Recurrent clamors by students and academics for universities in Africa and elsewhere, to imbibe and exude a spirit of inclusion are a continual reminder that universities can and need to be much more convivial. Processes of knowledge production that champion delusions of superiority and zero-sum games of absolute winners and losers are elitist and un-convivial.

Academic disciplines tend to encourage introversion and emphasize exclusionary fundamentalisms of heartlands rather than highlight inclusionary overtures of borderlands. Frequenting crossroads and engaging in frontier conversations are frowned upon, if not prohibited. The scarcity of conviviality in universities, within and between disciplines, and among scholars results in highly biased knowledge processes.

The production and consumption of knowledge are socially and politically mediated by webs of humanity, hierarchies of power, and instances of human agency. Given the resilience of colonial education throughout Africa and among Africans, endogenous traditions of knowledge are barely recognized and grossly underrepresented. What does conviviality in knowledge production entail?

It involves conversing and collaborating across disciplines and organizations and integrating epistemologies informed by popular universes and ideas of reality. Convivial scholarship is predicated upon recognizing and providing for incompleteness - in persons, disciplines, and traditions of knowing and knowledge making.
