Abstract

The chapter presents critical perspectives on the need to decolonise theological education south of the Sahara in the Information Age. Based on an integrated triplex framework of analysis drawn from postcolonial discourse, the chapter examines three conceptual dimensions related to coloniality, state of neocoloniality and challenging neocoloniality. From this framework, anticolonialism is suggested as an appropriate conceptual dimension to challenge neocoloniality in theological education. If sufficiently utilised, anticolonialism has potential to equip indigenous leadership in the postcolonial environment with conceptual and practical tools necessary for radical action for change in theological education. The chapter provides decolonial strategies couched in anticolonialism to demonstrate what can be done to address the problems of neocoloniality inherent in theological education south of the Sahara.
